George Bush and Auto Bailout - Did We Agree To The Columbia Free Trade Deal?
I read that George Bush is now willing to support an interim bailout of the Big Three. What happened to his insistance that the Congress also agree to the free trade deal with Columbia as a quid pro quo? Did Congress give in?

3. So far there is no talk about it
there is one article from BigFarmers complaining they were told the FTA was not on the table


Passage of Colombia FTA Unlikely in This Congress

Members of Congress will return to Washington this week for likely the last time in the 110th Congress, with a potential bailout for the auto industry on the top of the agenda and passage of a pending free trade agreement with Colombia likely not on the agenda at all.

A recently-signed trade agreement between Canada and Colombia has made passage of the U.S.-Colombia agreement even more urgent. The Canada-Columbia agreement will phase out 98 percent of tariffs on Canadian imports into Colombia over a five to 10 year period, though it could take up to a year for the two countries to ratify the pact.
