Our president shills for big business:
President Bush on Thursday cast the controversial trade pact with Central America as a “jobs program” that would help the United States and its neighbors better compete with Asian economies.
The U.S.-Central American Free Trade Agreement faces a critical vote next week in the House of Representatives, where some lawmakers fear it will lead to job losses in textile-producing states.
Bush said the pact would create a more level playing field for U.S. businesses.
But if you’re a U.S. worker, you’re hosed. Your job is only protected under CAFTA if you’re a CEO.
