Free Trade agreements in the American Jobs Act

2 posts / 0 new

I was pleased with everything Obama said about the American Jobs Act, except for the part about needing more new Free Trade agreements to stimulate our foriegn trade. I would like to see Dennis Kucinich on The Big Picture giving his take on this, perhaps along with a breif tutorial on the problems already caused by Free Trade Alliances.

If Mr Smith wants to buy something from Mr Jones that Mr Jones wants to sell him. why should it matter if Mr Jones is next door? In the next street? In the next town? In the next State? In the next Country?

Liberals despite thier regular bleating about government getting in the way of consenting adults in the bedroom when it come to sodomy, will hypocratically call for government to get between two consenting adults who just want to make a mutually beneficial business transaction.

The argument for letting government get involved in choosing winners and losers in the economy is the same as advocating for sand to be poured into a well oiled machine.

How much did "fast track" cost the corporate elite?

It cost corporations less than $18,000 bucks per vote to get “fast track” passed in the United States Senate.

According to a recent analysis by The Guardian Newspaper, corporate members of the US Business Coalition for TPP donated more than $1.1 million dollars to Senate campaigns in the first quarter of 2015. The average Democrat received about $9,700 dollars and the average Republican raked in almost $20,000.
