CAFTA: Another Way to Spell NAFTA

PJBuchanan outlines reality:

In 1993, Republicans, by four to one, signed on to NAFTA. They believed the promises that our $5 billion trade surplus with Mexico would grow and illegal immigration would diminish. They were deceived. ... The U.S. trade surplus with Mexico vanished overnight. Last year, we ran a $50 billion trade deficit. Since 1993, 15 million illegal aliens have been caught breaking into the United States. ... As for Mexico's major exports to us, they appear to be two: narcotics and Mexicans. ...

House Republicans can stop this process cold by just saying no to CAFTA. The Business Roundtable will get over it. After all, they have no place else to go.

Here, he's wrong. The Business Roundtable will go to the highest bidder.
