Free Trade Fact of the Day

Posted By Conn Carroll On April 11, 2008 @ 10:35 am In International | Comments Disabled

Remember back when some Democrats supported free trade? It was called the 90s. Of course, some Democrats still support free trade, but as Speaker Nancy Pelosi demonstrated yesterday [1], the protectionist wing of party is in full control today. The only Democrats that seem to support free trade today no longer have any power … like Bill Clinton who can be seen telling an audience in Colombia below that “the best thing we can do is to do the Andean Trade Pact, then finish the Free Trade [2]” agreement with Colombia.

Watch the video at ABC News here [3].
