U.S. lawmakers launch push to repeal NAFTA

• By Doug Palmer (Washington), Reuters
A small group of U.S. lawmakers unveiled legislation on Thursday to withdraw from the North American Free Trade Agreement in the latest sign of congressional disillusionment with free-trade deals. The bill spearheaded by Rep. Gene Taylor, a Mississippi Democrat, would require President Barack Obama to give Mexico and Canada six months notice that the United States will no longer be part of the 16-year-old trade pact. "At a time when 10 to 12 percent of the American people are unemployed, I think Congress has an obligation to put people back to work," Taylor said.

I take that back.  Ducati's back in Italian hands and I can't find anything about a Texas factory.

My immediate thought/opinion is complete support of this legislation.  It can't hurt our economy any more than the "free-trade" debacle which has been destroying our economy.  

Let's hear more about this!  Personally, I seek out products made in the USA and buy them.  I do not buy imports anymore unless...

It would be good to protect the industry we don't have anymore. Fools. Too late now. When industry went to China, we sent the tools and the engineers with them and now China has turned the corner. They can build almost anything as good as we can. Industry isn't coming back. We lost our manufacturing edge and it's NEVER COMING BACK.
