Congressman Marsha Blackburn issued the following statement about a letter she and other leaders of the Energy and Commerce Committee have sent to Obama Administration Officials seeking answers regarding the recent government raid of Tennessee’s Gibson Guitar Corporation.

“When the President last night said that he wanted more products around the world stamped 'Made in America', I said -- what about Gibson Guitar?  Having armed federal agents raid an iconic American company is no way to inspire economic certainty and spur job creation.  Instead, we need to cut back some of the out-of-control regulations and hold the Obama Administration accountable for selectively enforcing rules that are hindering job growth and killing small businesses.  We want some answers.”

The Energy and Commerce Committee issued this Press Release today where the full text of the letter can be found.
