  •  I think the many new "Free Trade" treaties (2+ / 0-)

    the administration has been working on is counter to an American Jobs program.  In other words, I think their economic and employment policies are working counter to the need of the working class of America to have decent jobs.

    Given that, I'm not sure what course to take. Because the President and the administration thinks that secret trade negotiations and more "free trade" will help the USA, when it will only hurt the American people.  All the American people, that is, beneath the fantastically wealthy already.  They'll benefit, as usual.

    I agree good jobs programs would be a windfall in the voting booth for Democrats.  However, we'll have to find some nominative "Democrats" who will actually believe in that.

    Meanwhile, our jobs market is in a race to the bottom with every new "free trade" agreement implemented by this administration (and all the others in the past).
