Thank you for proving that NAFTA is a U.S. Republican and Canadian conservative intiative all the way. At last, your cut-and-paste has had some use. Not what you intended, thank god you can't understand the written word else you would've held off.
To make matters worse, in 1992, Bill Clinton and a coalition of Republicans and conservative Democrats gave us NAFTA, which turned a trickle of industries leaving our country into a giant sucking sound, as the unfairly ridiculed H. Ross Perot correctly predicted.

Today, corporations’ freedom to abandon American communities and workers and outsource to those countries with the lowest wages and worst working conditions has given them total control over how new advancements in technology and productivity are shared.

As a result of globalization, workers are virtually powerless to negotiate for higher wages or decent working conditions, even during a time of exploding productivity. In addition, corporate executives and their investors want all the benefits of scientific advancements and new technology for themselves. They feel no obligation to share with workers, even those who, over many years of service, were responsible for their previous successes in this country.
Today, if technology doubles the productivity of workers, they don’t see their pay increase or their working conditions improve—half of them get fired. They then enter the labor market and exert further downward pressures on general wage levels.

NAFTA and free trade agreements
Guess what. This very same coalition that Truman defeated, Republicans and conservative Democrats, is doing it to the country again. NAFTA and subsequent trade agreements are today’s equivalent to the Taft-Hartley Bill of 1947. Except now, the strategy of pitting workers from different states against each other has been extended to the world “free market.”
Today’s voters have been conned into believing that it is a good idea to pit workers of the world against American workers, and someone needs to educate the public about what’s going on.(Guess what, most of the public knows it anyway—they’re just in denial—so it’ll be easy.)
Of course, if you supported NAFTA and other free trade agreements, you’ve already made a serious mistake. I hope you at least supported strong regulations to protect the environment and workers’ rights. If, like the Republicans, you didn’t, you’ve lost one of the most powerful voter appeals you could have had.
Of course, as everyone now knows, trade agreements that protect workers’ rights aren’t worth the paper they’re written on. Countries in the developing world know full well that their power to attract American corporations is totally dependent upon the extent to which they can offer impoverished workers with no real protections. No matter what they agree to, their enforcement of worker protection agreements are cosmetic at best.

LABOR'S BALL AND CHAIN

Taft-Hartley has been labor's ball and chain ever since. Early on, labor made a bid at resisting the law. UE, the Steelworkers, and other CIO unions pledged not to cooperate with the new Taft-Hartley Labor Board. CIO president Philip Murray and Mineworkers president John L. Lewis vowed they would not sign the measure's red-scare affidavit. But within a few years, unions were forced to submit.

In 1953, U.S. News and World Report could ask, "Are Unions Slipping? No Growth in Six Years." In 1946, the CIO's membership had been 6.3 million; by 1954, it was 4.6 million. Overall, union membership fell from 33.7 percent of the labor force in 1947 to 31.5 percent in 1950. Although union membership began rising slowly to reach a post-war high of 34.7 percent in 1954, that was followed by a steady decline, aided heavily by the employer tools supplied by Taft-Hartley. Under the legislation, employers can get in the way of almost every union activity -- from organizing the shop to going on strike to mobilizing community support for a campaign.

The cost of labor is only one factor when companies consider moving offshore.
History has shown us that union brought many needed changes to the workplace. Some union workers are paid far more than their job is worth....but then again, the same thing can be said of many corporate execs.
Unions were fine years ago. It wasn't until they were forcing companies into pension plans, etc. that they simply could not afford that brought about the major problems.

Get over it President Obama won

Many people did not want Romney and Ryan in the White House

With their stance on Medicare and Sccial Security and reproductive rights for women. Also their views and the middle and low income wage earners.

Their only caring about the million and billionaires not wanting to tax them.

Their views on immigration were wrong

The American people did not want a far right wing conservative tea party people in the White House

This should be the death blow to the tea party..

Many people still don't like have an "unknown" in the WH.
Only caring about the rich....BS
Obama failed to enforce Federal Immigration Laws! Views on immigration? BS
The "AMERICAN PEOPLE" don't want a lying fraud as President who doesn't have a clue!
When Omama is done.....it may well be the death of the DIMs! BTW, I said that a long, long time ago.
There simply is no reason for anyone, not a soul, to look up to this so called leader (LMAO).
If you or anyone else thinks for one minute that Omama is going to help small businesses (where real jobs come from) then you've been fooled badly. The only way that hook is coming out is with your stomach attached to it.

You probably didn't know this you really know very little of anything. but NAFTA was the brain child of Bush 42 and was overwhelmingly supported by Republicans in Congress. But yes Clinton did sign it into law but only after Bush 42 had ramrodded it toward legislation. Check it out its been all over the internet with factual credible information. You have a right to an opinion but not the facts. When you get your facts correct just shut up for awhile.

NAFTA belongs to conservatives, namely president Reagan and P.M. Mulroney. Signed by Clinton, yes and Chrétien but entirely initiated and approved by Reagan and Mulroney. All Clinton did was sign the treaty. We've discussed this before, Rogue. You were wrong then, and wrong now.
Actually it was Bush 41 who championed NAFTA and it was overwhelmingly voted for by the Republicans in Congress at the time. and yes Clinton did sign the legislation but that was the extent of his involvement in it becoming law.


But thank you for explaining this correctly again for the Umpteeth f'n time. Why do these clowns on here not understand this? Right wingers don't read or understand anything else besides fux news and right wing blogs.
