Patriarch's CEO Lynn Tilton acts to Revive American Manufacturing.

"People who have been making things with their hands for generation after generation have always been able to have a life with dignity taking care of their family doing so. Eradicating that from our economy is an arrogance that says we are too good for that."

"I am here to say that there is no shame in being the maker of things. Every great economy has been built upon being the maker of things." ..."We are de-evolving as a nation when we take those jobs away."

"Frankly, if we do not employ people in this country it will ultimately end badly for all of us."
