Why Does Everyone Pick On Hillary Over NAFTA?
Wasn't Mr. Clinton's permanent "free" trade status for China - which Hillary was a proponent of as a senatorial candidate - far more destructive than NAFTA?

3. No candidate running will change NAFTA
very much. Your dreaming if you think it can be changed.

9. Bill Clinton opposed NAFTA until he ran for President
in 1992, then during the campaign he said he would change it and add protections for the workers and the environment. Now she says she will change the agreement, it kind of leads me to believe she won't do anything for some reason..

7. I suppose she is the only one in the senate whose vote counts.
Lets see Obama, Dodd, Biden Kucnich (house) wonder what they do with those. Course you can't count Obama he misses 80% of the votes. Look at the congressional record. I'm not responsible for it.

8. It is how she has handled the issue as a candidate.
In an earlier Debate, HRC specifically said She would call for a
Moratorium on Trade Deals and examine them to determine what is working
and what is not working.

In less than 2 weeks she Voted for the Peru Trade Agreement (just the
other week).

When she said she would call the Moratroim--I was suckered. I thought
this is the smartest thing any candidate on either side I had heard
from any candidate.

It would have been smarter, if she had "skipped the vote" and people
like me could have held out hope that change would happen.

her vote told me in spades--The KStreet Crowd and the Corporations
are what really count.

I would not say I pick on HrC about Nafta.

Social Justice is my most important issue. Looking out of Middle
Class Working People is part of Social Justice.

These Candidates had better learn fast---do not try to have it all
ways. The Internet is watching.
