I am grateful that President Obama has vowed to enforce trade rules more vigorously than his predecessor. In fact, President George W. Bush never granted relief under the Section 421 statute, despite the fact that the data warranted relief in at least four separate cases. In at least two of these cases one for wire hangers and one for iron waterworks the domestic industry no longer exists. The case before you today presents a tremendous opportunity to show the world that the United States is headed in a new direction on trade and ready to embrace policies that better serve American workers and American businesses.
