Representative Wally Herger (R-CA) is the ranking member on the House Ways & Means Committee, Trade Subcommittee, responsible for the pending U.S. free-trade agreements with Peru, Colombia, Panama and South Korea. In this week’s Vodcast highlights of “America’s Business with Mike Hambrick,” Representative Herger discusses trade’s prospects in Congress.
Herger challenges organized labor for reflexively opposing any free trade agreements, despite trade’s importance to the U.S. economy and jobs creation. For every job lost because of trade, 10 are created, Herger observes.
Also on this week’s Vodcast is Broderick Johnson, head of the Don’t Tax Our Web Coalition, calling for a permanent moratorium on taxing Internet access. NAM President John Engler closes with “The Last Word” commentary on the Family and Medical Leave Act.
