Obama and Clinton Agree: Tell Congress to Say NO to Colombia FTA!

George Bush today sent a proposal to Congress to create yet another “free” trade agreement — this time with Colombia, a country where more than 2,200 trade unionists have been assassinated since 1991.

During an appearance at the White House, Bush said he signed a letter giving Congress 90 working days to vote on the agreement.


The labor federations Change to Win and the AFL-CIO oppose this agreement.  Change to Win says: “The Colombia “free” trade agreement is a bad deal for American and Colombian workers alike.”  

Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton also oppose this agrement.  So should all Democrats, including you.

The past two games in which Stanford has played (Elite 8 and Final 4) were so well-played by both teams – that was some seriously great basketball. I do hope the final game, versus the dreaded Tennessee, will be equally engaging.
