Pratt and Whitney shows of new 'Geared Turbofan' on Capitol Hill
Ingenuity is on display on Capitol Hill. The aerospace manufacturer Pratt and Whitney made the trip to Washington to show off the latest in aviation engineering. They say with their innovation comes thousands more jobs across the country.
“Why not here? This is the place to highlight any innovation technology, certainly one that is married literally to the expansion of jobs,” said Rep. Ralph Abraham (R-LA). He says this engine is exactly what Congress should invest in. He says Pratt and Whitney is showing that manufacturing is alive and well in the U.S. “America was built on manufacturing and it will continue to grow on manufacturing,” said Abraham.
