No Elroy you are past confused. This is action by the Obama administration which helps us. I know it is hard to tell that with the brainwashing and all. See as we all know Republicans "fall in line" like sheep. So no need to really think about anything right?

It is the politicians fault in the first place for signing trade deals like NAFTA & GATT that has caused our manufacturing to leave the country. If these politicians had any backbone them they would listen to the American people & push to repeal NAFTA & GATT. You do not see Boucher, Goodlatte, or Periello saying or doing anything about it either as well as Hurt & Griffith who are running against Periello & Boucher for their district.
