So, you forgot who drafted it, huh dummy ???

Following diplomatic negotiations dating back to 1986 among the three nations, the leaders met in San Antonio, Texas, on December 17, 1992, to sign NAFTA. U.S. President George H. W. Bush, Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney and Mexican President Carlos Salinas, each responsible for spearheading and promoting the agreement, ceremonially signed it. The agreement then needed to be ratified by each nation's legislative or parliamentary branch.

Before the negotiations were finalized, Bill Clinton came into office in the U.S. and Kim Campbell in Canada, and before the agreement became law, Jean Chrétien had taken office in Canada.

NAFTA had support from Libs and Conservs.

If you read the entire article, Palosie, Biden etc supported NAFTA..

They are RICH and own companies that benefitted from NAFTA.. NAFTA destroyed US jobs and they didn't care..

If you check the vote from both houses, assuming my source is correct, the trade agreement had more republican votes than democrat, and does appear to have started momentum pre-clinton.

OK, so tell me who was bought off. There have been no new entitlement programs (outside of the ACA which hasn't really gone into effect yet).
The payroll tax cut is the only thing new I can think of and that goes away at the end of the year most likely.
You act like the ACA was some small entitlement program that wasn't mostly aimed at providing medical coverage to the poorer Americans. Which groups makes up the majority of poor Americans? How about the birth control and women's health coverage that mostly benefits single women?

Also you seem to forget his executive order on illegals.

Lastly who has been saying that he plans on limiting student loan repayments as a percentage of earnings and then offering full forgiveness if not paid within 25 years?

Must I remind you that Bush Lite inherited a budgetary SURPLUS from Clinton -- which he claimed made clear that taxes were too high, so he took care of that "problem " with his tax cuts. Did you know that the conservative Heritage Foundation eagerly supported those tax cuts when they were proposed? According to them, those tax cuts would spur such a gigantic economic boom that we could pay off the ENTIRE NATIONAL DEBT BY 2012 -- and run HUGE annual surpluses thereafter? Yes -- these right-wing nut jobs ACTUALLY BELIEVED that economic rubbish. Of course, they have taken that precious item off of their web site. Priceless!
Actually the dotcom bubble burst in early 2000 and when headed into a deep recession. I remember sitting in computer training to become a MCSE and hearing an announcement that Sprint was laying off 3000 IT workers. Then IBM followed suit. Then sprint laid off 2000 more. Many more followed. So I just spent 15k on getting trained to go into IT where the industry was dumping workers by the thousands everyday for the next 2 years. Needless to say I stayed at my current job where I was making 60k. 12 years later I make 65k. If I was union in this business I would be on unemployment. Then 911 happened and you know the rest. We probably shouldn't have gone to Iraq the second time because we should have been able to finish the job the first time. But thanks to that wonderful organization the UN we were not allowed to complete the task. Saving countless American lives. We should have made Afghanistan a glass factory!

Good job, working on 2014, huh ???

The whole argument about contraceptives was stupid. Healthcare already covers contraceptives unless you purchase coverage that does not provide it, or you go to a religious college that does not believe in pre marital sex. And if Fluke was paying 200 per year on contraceptives, what does that equal out to in condoms? Lets say 2 per condom for the good ones, or just buy the family pack of 12. 1000 condoms per year equals 3 times per day? Maybe she should spend more time in class or the library. And if you can not afford to buy contraceptives, can you afford diapers?

I'd tell you the multiple other female benefits of the pill, but you'll never need to know and your intelligence ....is obviously limited. Ps- Feel free to explain why it provides Viagra, without a marriage certificate.

Considering most insurance plans already cover contraceptives and Walmart sells them for 8 dollars in their Pharma, it is a stupid argument. And yes the pill regulates one period, so I've heard. If you can not afford birth control, don't have sex.
