37. Well, that will help the workers in IN, who lost their jobs to Mexicans earning 10%. TEN PERCENT

of what was paid to them, Americans, for the same job.

They want to turn us all into SERFS eventually.

Waiting for trickle down. The Clintons may speak ag trickle down, but its just part of their con. Their actions belie the words.

Last month, the air conditioner manufacturer Carrier told 1,400 workers in Indianapolis that their middle-class jobs were being offshored to Mexico. Carrier would slash its labor costs since its new workers would earn only about 10 percent of what the United Steelworkers earned in Indiana.

This is the real face of free trade deals. Workers that could afford to own their own homes and send their kids to college have had their economic security sacrificed on the altar of free trade.

Since the 1990s, the big business wings of the Democratic and Republican parties have united to push corporate trade deals that cost millions of jobs and contribute to America’s growing economic inequality. There was agreement among the Washington elites that these trade agreements — written by and for the worlds biggest corporations — were good for everyone. But really they were only good for everyone they met at the best cocktail parties.

The Clinton are Super-Politicians.

No conscience, no empathy, we can talk about why they ended up that way, but first we have to bring them to heel.
