Press release date: December 3, 2009

WASHINGTON, DC - Former Speaker of the House and General Chairman of American Solutions, Newt Gingrich, recently honored Mr. Richard Schloesser, President and Chief Executive Officer of Toray Plastics (America), Inc., located in North Kingstown, Rhode Island, as American Solutions' 2009 Entrepreneur of the Year from Rhode Island. Speaker Gingrich recognized Mr. Schloesser at an American Solutions awards dinner on October 7, 2009 at the Capitol Hill Club in Washington, DC.

"While Washington politicians are busy imposing legislation that reduces jobs with health care and energy taxes, it's important that successful businessmen like Rick are recognized for doing what it takes to create jobs. America is nearing 10% unemployment, and creating new jobs is necessary for economic recovery. Unlike Washington, business leaders like Rick realize that America does not work if Americans are not working. I look forward to working with Rick and Toray Plastics (America) on advancing real solutions to help create more jobs and get our economy moving again."

In wake of the Federal Reserve's recent report that we are at a 10.2% national unemployment rate, American Solutions launched a "Jobs Here - Jobs Now - Jobs First" agenda that contains four positive solutions to help small business create new jobs now. The four solutions are a 2 year, 50% payroll tax cut, cutting the corporate tax rate to 12.5% to match Ireland, abolishing the capital gains tax to match China, and ending the death tax.
