My friends, you are seeing NAFTA at work. Thank the CLINTON clan for this one!

I'll bet the WHOLE VILLAGE in Mexico will make less than one employee in Indiana!

Actually, you can thank George H W Bush for NAFTA. It was his creation to begin with.

YEAH....just forget about the Republican congress and special interests that owned/own them. They had nothing to do with it!!! Everything is the Clintons fault!!! They are the anti-christs!!!!

p.s. However, I can't explain how that anti-christ managed to balance a budget and our fellow bible thumper Bush is the biggest spender since Johnson. Oh well, I will just blame it on the Clintons as well.

I hope the good folks in Tennessee get themselves prepared for when this happens to them in 6 months or so. Before this is over we will be swimming the other way across the Rio Grande, looking for work. Nuck FAFTA and all those who voted for it.

I voted for Perot, he was right about the "sucking sound" of NAFTA. NAFTA was a true Repubicrat effort.

NAFTA was approved during the Clinton administration...not the Bush era. Get your facts staight. Besides, why does balancing the budget have anything to do with this...but I can't wait to spend my rebate check...which was approved by both parties!

Vincennes is already declining and this will just speed up the process. It's unfortunate to see a town with so much history turn into what it is now.

Hey, "stiring the pot." Your just another gop ideot blaming the dems. Where's all the tickle down that was supposed to happen when big biz got all the breaks. The bushies have had to bail us out of 3 depressions, or close to, since coming to office. Who's paying for those your jerk?

Where's your great governor when it comes to job loses. All he ever shows up for are the "new hires." He's a piece of crap just like all you republicans. You deserve what you got.

Unfortunately, I went to school in that town. It's not declining, it's just the mentality of that backward, hillbilly attitude there. Typical Indiana school systems.

I couldn't understand a word you wrote. I hope your mommy didn't home school you, because she failed.

You talk about a town who could least afford to lose anymore jobs...I am sorry for the people who lost their jobs, but please tell me you saw this coming? Manufacturing is the fastest declining job segment in America. Times change, and employment opportunities change as well. Get a skill or and education or become unemployed.

You forgot the Republican congress that approved NAFTA, dumbass. Balancing the budget is a Republican "mantra" along with not over spending which Bush has failed at both while Clinton succeeded at both. Tool.

Most of the plant closings we're seeing are union shops. Foreign companies seem to do quite well, here. Subaru, Toyota and Honda have opened (or soon will) new manufacturing plants in Indiana in the last 20 years, all non-union. And, there are smaller companies too. Ryobe in Shelbyville.
