Script of "Meghan" (TV)

MEGHAN COFIELD: After 12 years my job was shipped to China, and I didn't know what I was going to do.

(Text on screen: Former factory worker -- Dayton, OH)

John McCain voted for tax breaks for corporations that ship American jobs overseas.

(Text on screen: Congressional Record -- Vote #517 -- 10/26/95)

How does that help working people? I was "Meghan the Factory Worker" -- and John McCain's votes on outsourcing haven't helped me one bit.

John McCain needs to know that giving tax breaks to corporations that ship American jobs overseas is just not right.
