TRANSCRIPT OF CITAC RADIO SPOT
ANCR: A MESSAGE TO PRESIDENT BUSH, ON FREE TRADE RESTRICTIONS:
MAN: "My Dad worked in the steel mill for over 40 years.
My plant uses domestic and imported steel for manufacturing.
Hey, I'd like to save the American steel industry as much as the next guy...
but putting tariffs or quotas on imported steel isn't the way to do it.
The reason we buy any steel is because it's cost-effective and has the qualities we need. For us, importing isn't an option - it's a necessity..
It's called open trade.
If there's an unfair tariff on it, guess who pays for it? Americans.
The tariff isn't on foreigners...it's on us.
Big Steel wants to be bailed out again, and it's gonna cost all Americans. Thousands of jobs could be lost or moved overseas. Prices on everything from cars to refrigerators will go up.
That's too big a price to pay for Big Steel's own failures.
Mr. Bush, there is another way.
Let's keep open trade open."
Ancr: THE PRESIDENT IS ABOUT TO MAKE A DECISION ON PROPOSED TARIFFS FOR STEEL IMPORTS. THIS DECISION WILL HAVE A DIRECT IMPACT ON THE US ECONOMY, AMERICAN JOBS AND WHAT YOU PAY FOR MANUFACTURED PRODUCTS.
LOG ON TO TODAY.
PAID FOR BY THE CONSUMING INDUSTRIES TRADE ACTION COALITION.
