The best aid for the US worker is to get rid of Obama and dems and impeach them and end all unions which would let the USA get back to work.

Impeachment is our only option..Never thought
I would ever say a thing like that!!!!!
But this country means more to me than OBAMA...
In three years we have become a LOOSER NATION!!!

How do we impeach a president? I don't
think for a minute he would go willing?
do you? Time to stand up and be counted,
admit mistakes have been made, time for corrections?

He hasn't played enough golf courses yet, nor have Michelle make enough trips so she can blow our money like Hilliary had to show Chelsie. How many hundred thousand did that take.

AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka said letting the 2009 expansion expire for good would be "a tragedy," adding, "It would hurt the recovery, and it would be a travesty for families who have lost jobs and are now floundering to find something."

Maybe some of these overpaid greedy union bosses should give up some of their salary to cover some job training since unions drive away so many jobs.

The terrorist politicians who off-shored Americas industrial base should be tried for treason/sedition against the American people.

There will be no recovery, this is the new norm.

The scumbag politicians sold you out to enrich themselves. As Americans lose their homes, cars and everything they worked for the elitist will buy them up for pennies on the dollar.

You are watching the largest wealth transfer that the world has ever seen.

"Trade liberalization does cause some job losses, but it also causes job gains,"

This is why the trade adjustment program is needed. The jobs that are lost and the jobs that are gained are not often in the same field. Those who lose their jobs must be retrained to compete for jobs in areas of growth. Otherwise, we just keep off-the-chart unemployment while many jobs sit empty for lack of qualified workers.

The industrial revolution was Americas backbone, what made Americas wealth, put food on millions of families tables, let them afford homes, cars and vacations.

The powers that be decided to gut America by off-shoring the manufacturing base to make Americans poor, dependent and weak. The politicians became rich as they did the bidding of the globalist.

And the sheeple keep electing the same scumbags who sold them out.

The sheeple must love their servitue and enslavement.

To save our beloved republic the best loss of a job should be Shylock Brown's. In 2012 if you see Brown... Flush him down !!!!!

If there is agreement on both sides indicating the trade agreements are counterproductive then vote them down. We need jobs and cannot do anything at all that might kill jobs.

Republicans and Democrats alike agreed that trade agreements would invariably cause job losses in some sectors,

Any company that moves jobs overseas should be required to provide full training to employees that lost their jobs in the US. Problem solved, they would be retrained or the jobs would stay at home in the US of A.

That sure will create more employers. Why not just say that a company should pay the employee forever, job or not. It is not a company's job to retrain an ex employee.
