Last weekend, Youngstown Ohio’s Falcon Transport texted 600 of their employees at 8:00 PM on a Saturday night. The message was simple, all 600 were being laid off.

Congressman Tim Ryan, who represents the area, was furious. Trump has spent a lot of time speaking to the people of Youngstown telling them that jobs were coming back. Yet, just in the last few months, General Motors announced they were closing and now Falcon Transport is leaving. While big banks got bailed out after their risky investments put the entire US economy at risk, Congressman Ryan wants to know where the bailout is for the American worker. Watch his impassioned speech from the House floor below and remember this when you head to the polls in 2020.
