58. "This is not about Hillary vs Obama, it is about the farmers and the environment of Peru."
Edited on Sun Feb-24-08 12:17 PM by ProSense
So Hillary screwed them too, therefore it's Obama fault?

Here is information about the Peru bill.

NAFTA was a horrible bill, which Bill Clinton signed into law and Hillary has defended.

Biden's reason for not supporting the bill has nothing to do with the quality of the bill, but his belief that Bush will not enforce.

"I cannot support the Peru Free Trade Agreement because the Bush Administration has not proven that it will effectively enforce labor and environmental provisions, however good they may be. Our economy is slowing down, and Americans don't trust this administration to protect their jobs, or the safety of our imports.

"Americans understand that this Administration does not have a plan to win in the new international economy. This is not the time to endorse its approach to trade deals."


No one got screwed because the bill is not NAFTA and enforcement is not up Bush, it's up to the next president.
