Post Script on Trade

By January 31, 2007Trade

Big day for trade yesterday, from the Ways & Means Committee hearing to the President’s trip to Caterpillar (forgive us if our pride is showing….)

Just to follow up, here’s a link to Ways & Means ranking minority member Jim McCrery’s (R-LA) opening statement. You’ll see he hits all the right points: More trade agreements, more enforcement, job training for anyone displaced (doesn’t matter whether it’s by trade or not — anyone who’s displaced should get training), and encouraging savings and investment. We happen to agree on all fronts.

Also, the President gave a strong message out in Peoria about the importance of trade and free trade agreements. Here’s a link to NAM President John Engler’s statement, applauding the fact that on this, the Prez was dead-on right.
