Louise Slaughter has truly earned her reputation as a straight-shooter and tough fighter for the middle class. She has delivered results here at home, saving jobs at Delphi, bringing a high-tech bio-science lab to the University of Rochester, and working to make our district a national leader on fuel-cell manufacturing. She has also been a force for change against the inaction of Congress. She’s launched multiple investigations into public corruption and passed a law utlawing insider trading by members of Congress. She’s stood up to military contractors who were supplying poor-quality body armor to our troops in battle and successfully got 16,000 pieces of body armor recalled and replaced with safer armor. She is leading the fight to protect and strengthen Social Security and Medicare from cuts and privatization schemes. She has been a fighter for women’s health and women’s rights for her entire career in public service. And she is one the nation’s fiercest opponents of unfair trade laws that ship American jobs overseas. Louise has fought for legislation to stop taxpayer subsidies for corporations that outsource our jobs, and instead, has introduced a Made-in-America agenda that levels the playing field for American workers and manufacturers. Louise takes on the fights no one else will, and gets results that no one else can.
