    another Democrat-signed job killing law like Obamacare and NAFTA. And don't tell me free-trade is great, that's a lie.
    When will you all realize the Federal government could give two shits about you?

    The Republicans think it's great:

    From the Republican Party platform 2012:

    "We call for the restoration of presidential Trade Promotion Authority. It will ensure up or down votes in Congress on any new trade agreements, without meddling by special interests. A Republican President will complete negotiations for a Trans-Pacific Partnership to open rapidly developing Asian markets to US products. Beyond that, we envision a worldwide multilateral agreement among nations committed to the principles of open markets, what has been called a "Reagan Economic Zone," in which free trade will truly be fair trade."

    Both democrats and republicans have sent this great country into the sewer. Free trade is a disastrous failure that will continue to weaken this country. It is time to do away with all these free trade agreements and start protecting American workers from low wage foreign competition. It is also time for a global minimum wage.
