"{Republicans} are the same people who brought us NAFTA, CAFTA and WTO deals with China sending our jobs out of the country."

These same deals brought us goods at lower prices, which enabled us all to have more money, more jobs... Economics 101.

Yes, the jobs that China could do more efficiently than we could... great, let them do that. But we are also outdoing them in other fields now. Why should we be making plastic toys or cars when we should be making software?

It makes sense to gerrymanderers and crooks like Thommie Tillis and Tom DeLay.

Hey, rightard, stick to what's relevant. If all those people you name are crooks, and at least one of them is a convicted crook, it still has nothing to do with the illegal gerrymandering. Even a repug from WNC who darkens the doors of the General Assembly in Raleigh has just spoken out against adding downtown Asheville to twinky-boy Pattie McHenry's district.

So they're drawing a new map.

Well, hey, maybe the repug dude just got familiar with Sections 2 and 5 of the federal Voting Rights Act.

Hope this helps, heh heh heh.
