Remarks By Walmart U.S. President And CEO Bill Simon At The U.S. Manufacturing Summit

"Let's bring the jobs back. Let's bring the opportunity back. Let's bring the pride back.

"You see, we all identify with what we made in our hometowns.

"I'm from Hartford, Connecticut where we made Pratt & Whitney engines, and Colt firearms.

"And I guarantee you know what was made in your town.

"If you're from's Harleys.

"If you're from Easton,'s Crayola.

"If you're from Huntley,'s Weber Grills.

" Dallas has Texas Instruments; Wichita, Kansas is proud to be the home of Coleman Coolers.

"Making things is a part of who we are. And it's part of who we will be.

"And we can't afford to wait a minute longer.

"This challenging time for our country can be turned around, but we can't wait for the circumstances to be perfect.

"They never will be.

"We can't wait for someone else to ride in and save the day.

"We just have to choose to do it.

"And I know we will.

"In this room we have manufacturers, retail industry leaders, government officials. We have the capital, the expertise, and the ideas.

"And I believe we have the will.

"You heard the economists...the numbers work. You heard from the governors...the states will do their part. You heard from other companies...this is already working for them.

"So now it's up to us.

"We are taking a stand.

"If we do this right, we're going to remember this as the time we came roll up our get America back to work.

"That's what this summit is all about.

"That's why I'm so proud and grateful that you all are here.

"We're going to rebuild that class of American jobs in the middle that made this country great...and rebuild that path to a better life.
