Liberals outsourced? I guess Reagan was a Liberal.

I guess The Freedom Caucus is a Liberal group as well.

You Trump cultists kill brain cells everytime you speak.

Lots of problems with this "science" of yours.

I will agree with you that there are advantages for some in unrestricted trade.

There are advantages for others in restricted trade.

For a quarter of a century, employers have been beating employees and their union representatives over the head with free trade, i. e., NAFTA, 2000 China Trade Act, etc.

The deal is always the same, take it or leave it.

If workers refuse to accept whatever concessions employers are demanding, their jobs will be shipped off to Mexico, or China or some other low-wage nation.

Free trade is the most wonderful thing that has ever happened to greedy multinational corporations and the worst thing that has happened to their underpaid employees.
