Manufacturing orders grow on Boeing factory in South Carolina

Aug. 31, 2012, Fairfax, VA—Americans for Limited Government President Bill Wilson today issued the following statement responding to a 2.8 percent increase in manufacturing new orders reported by the U.S. Department of Commerce:

“New orders in manufacturing increased by $12.9 billion in July. $5.7 billion of that was motor vehicles and parts. And $7 billion was for non-defense aircraft, largely owing to the Boeing factory in South Carolina finally opening.

“If the Obama Administration had had its way, Boeing would have never been allowed to open that factory in South Carolina without union labor. Today’s good numbers are in spite of Obama. He gets no credit. His government-owned car companies are still failing, and his actions to halt Boeing in South Carolina discredit his entire approach to restoring manufacturing jobs in the U.S.”
