Just the "Free Market" at work, no freight, no need for trucks, oh, forgot, the Mexican trucks are now in America, thanks Reagan, thanks "W", more Americans out of work so Mexicans can work. Part of the Reagan/Bush family "New World Order" theory, reduce American workers to the level of mexicans.

I have always said Clinton signed the stupid law. Thing is, it was a follow on to Reagan's American Free Trade Agreement, a revised version. It was negotiated for the 4 years of Bush Daddy's time in office and the NAFTA agreement was signed by George HW Bush in December of 1992, fully agreed to by Mexico, Canada and the USA. Daddy Bush created it, signed it and sent it to Congress before Clinton was sworn into office. Once Congress ratified it, it was sent to Clinton by a Veto proof Congress. More Repugs Congressmen and Senators voted for it than Democrats, afterall, it was a REPUG Agreement from the very beginning. Part of Reagan and Daddy Bush's "New World Order" and a stepping stone towards their American Union modeled after the European Union. NAFTA, product of Reagan and Daddy Bush but passed off to Clinton for signature.

My brother works there and he seem blind sided.
Thought for sure they'd be working till at least 2010.Now an indefinite shut down that's all.
And that they may be trying speed up the sell of plant to cut losses. And also the amount of money they could make off of the sell.
what now
