This week Congressman Mac Thornberry was in Texoma to talk about the economy and specifically manufacturing jobs.

 As the nation's job growth remains sluggish and the economy continues to struggle Thornberry wanted to learn more about the operations at Pratt and Whitney.

The congressman wanted to hear about ideas or suggestions of how to turn around the economy.
