Press Release: Sean Hannity Once Again Sells Out American Manufacturing Workers

December 21, 2017

Over the last five years 30 American solar manufacturers who played by the rules have gone bankrupt because China cheated through cyber-theft and by enabling their companies to purposely sell solar cells and panels at a loss in an attempt to dominate this critical market.  Despite these catastrophic developments, lobby groups siding with China have once again paid Sean Hannity to do an advertisement that sells out American workers.

The Coalition for a Prosperous America, a nonprofit organization representing the interests of 4.1 million households through their agricultural, manufacturing and labor members, issued the following statement:

"We are disappointed that Mr. Hannity continues to take money from groups that see no problem with China's cheating, which has decimated an entire industry and directly led to the loss of numerous American manufacturing jobs.  We continue to support the measures necessary to stop China's cheating, including strong tariffs."

“We hope that Mr. Hannity takes a hard look at the groups that are involved in creating and distributing these ads because they have one thing in common, they are enabling China and its proxies to kill off American manufacturing.  Their members include companies based in China and make their products in China and other non-US locations.”

About CPA: The Coalition for a Prosperous America is the nation’s premier organization working on the intersection of trade, jobs, tax, and economic growth. We represent the interests of 4.1 million households through our agricultural, manufacturing, and labor members.

    We cannot compete with China on any high volume manufactured products — that includes solar panels.

    By focusing on one product, instead of pushing for across-the-board balanced trade, we are “swatting flies.”

    By forcing the trade balance toward zero, the free market would determine which products should be manufactured here, and which products should remain in China. For anyone who is new to the concept of “Balanced Trade,” you can Google it for the whole story.

    In 2003, Warren Buffett published an article in Fortune, recommending that our government impose “balanced trade” with China, over a five year phase-in period. That article is available at the bottom of the Wikipedia entry for "Balanced Trade. That article was re-published by Fortune in 2016.
