Susan Bysiewicz on Free Trade
Bysiewicz proposed closing tax loopholes that encourage companies to set up shop overseas and making changes to the North American Free Trade Agreement. She also advocated for more federal funding for scientific research and development. "It's that kind of investment that can help create jobs, and something that the federal government has not been doing, and should," Bysiewicz said.
Murphy proposed stronger "Buy American" laws, which would have the federal government buy more U.S.-made products. He also pitched in repairs to roads and rail lines, which he said would not only create construction jobs but also improve the local economy in general. "If you want to bring jobs to Connecticut, you have to focus on infrastructure," Murphy said.
