Clinton's first term began in January of 1993 so he certainly didn't sign NAFTA in 1991 did he dummy?<quoted text>
NAFTA-SIGNED INTO EFFECTIVE LAW-December 8, 1991, by William Jefferson Clinton!!!!
The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) is signed into law by President Bill Clinton. Clinton said he hoped the agreement would encourage other nations to work toward a broader world-trade pact.
NAFTA, a trade pact between the United States, Canada, and Mexico, eliminated virtually all tariffs and trade restrictions between the three nations. The passage of NAFTA was one of Clinton's first major victories as the first Democratic president in 12 years--though the movement for free trade in North America had begun as a Republican initiative.
During its planning stages, NAFTA was heavily criticized by Reform Party presidential candidate Ross Perot, who argued that if NAFTA was passed, Americans would hear a "giant sucking sound" of American companies fleeing the United States for Mexico, where employees would work for less pay and without benefits. The pact, which took effect on January 1, 1994, created the world's largest free-trade zone. This Day in History-History.com
A FACT is a FACT.
Now GET OVER it already DUH A VEY...and quit acting so damned holier than thou almighty IGNORANT. NONE of us are "perfect"!! NONE of us!!!!!!!!!!SANE ones anyway!)
But__he actually did sign NAFTA into law.
NAFTA was a Republican initiative all the way and a Bush I pet project, it was going to become law whether Clinton signed it or not but Clinton saw value in the agreement too.
It became a textbook example for unintended consequences.
