34. And AGAIN Kerry pointed out where enforcing EXISTING law in NAFTA
would have made a difference..there ARE some labor rights provisions and there ARE ways to BRING FORD around without taking away the progress that could help Mexico.

There are also ways to LEAN on government leadership in these nations.

BTW..I can live Ocean front in Mexico with a maid every day for less than 500 a month...making half as much is probably not necessary given THEIR cost of living.
