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.
then why did Clinton sign it?

Why didn't he say "lookit this bill sucks and I'm goingto veto it. If you want it passed, you'll have to over ride the veto but I'm going to stand up for what I believe and not sign it."

Mr. Class,
I really wish that you could laugh about it. The truth of the matter is that everything that you have saved will be worth about 1/4 of what you think in about 4 years due to the money they are printing in washington. You, more than others, will be bearing the blunt of this. I sure hope that everything you own is paid for, and that you do not plan on having any buying power in your retirement.
This is assuming that you are not one of the rare people that are so wealthy they could give more than %75 to charity and live comfortably the rest of their lives.
