Joseph Fleming didn't just see his Valley bounce back after President Obama's auto industry rescue: he saw 900 jobs saved.

"I was part-owner of a Logistics Company with over 400 employees dedicated to a GM operation in the Mahoning Valley. We also had 500 truck drivers primarily focused on the auto industry-all of those jobs were saved.
