NAFTA is what got this country into the jobless situation that we are currently experiencing. Many good jobs have gone outside of the U.S. because the companies can get a higher profit margin since the pay and benefits to employees is lower.

We can thank our elected idi*ts for that. I remember when NAFTA came up for the vote, and in spite of majority objections by the people, the likes of Bingaman, Domenici, etc. voted for it saying such things as the people don't understand, it will help the country. Yeah......sure...it helped all right, escorting lots of jobs out of here.

Remember - it was Clinton that signed it into law!
