Thank ole Bill Clinton with the passing of NAFTA on this sellout of American jobs!
Sorry for the double post. My droid needs tradin in!
Bill Clinton signed this bill into action but in all fairness Republicans wanted this passed as well. All in congress should share the shame of NAFTA. American workers have suffered because of this trade act and the only person who predicted the outcome was Ross Perot. Who said that giant sucking sound you hear is jobs leaving the country. The mainstream Republicans labeled him a nutcase to discredit him but history has proven him right.
Let's not overlook OzBama's role in our decline.
Clinton may have made some dumb moves, but Barry is fully entrenched with the "There's nothing special" about the United States, rhetoric and policy.
He looks both cute and lovable and at the same time, threatening.
I think we have Bush to thank for that one. Cute dragon.
but NAFTA went into effect On January 1, 1994.
I'm sure you must be right about Bush being behind it all, but from where I sit, looks more like he ended up in charge some six years later.
Not Bush the younger, Bush the elder. "Following 1986 diplomatic negotiations, leaders met in San Antonio, Texas, on December 17, 1992, to sign NAFTA. U.S. President George H. W. Bush, Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney and Mexican President Carlos Salinas, each responsible for spearheading and promoting the agreement, ceremonially signed it. Bush, who had worked to "fast track" the signing prior to the end of his term, ran out of time and President Clinton had to sign it into law."
