    Default The Real Effects of KORUS Can Be Seen in Our Struggling Economy

    And now we have the TPP but no matter how many people are against, I am sure it will get passed. Between bad trade deals, union busting and corporate greed, I really feel the middle class does not stand a chance of ever having a secure future again.

    President Obama took up the South Korea – U.S. free trade agreement (KORUS FTA) as his own, despite the fact that it was negotiated by his predecessor. He promised Americans more jobs and increased exports, despite the fact that studies showed we would actually lose jobs from this agreement.

    It hasn’t taken long to see that the critics of this agreement were right.

    The agreement went into effect in March, and it took only a scant amount of time to see that fears about the agreement were well-founded. The trade deficit nearly tripled in one month to $1.8 billion, which was also a $700 million increase from April of 2011. May saw an additional increase, and in tandem these two months showed a 63 percent increase in our trade deficit over the previous year. Since it was enacted, our total trade deficit with South Korea has been over 55 billion

Tell me the difference again between Democrats and Republicans.Your so right ABFwife,the middle class does not stand a chance.Not against MONEY and POWER.The last paragraph says it all.''Benefits only a small minority of WEALTHY INDIVIDUALS.They reap the benefits,while other AMERICANS LOSE THEIR JOBS.'' These are the same AMERICANS who have lost loved ones in THEIR FOREIGN WARS.Words elude me.It is totally beyond my Comprehension.Both Parties are nothing but PUPPETS on a STRING.And CORPORATE AMERICA IS THE PUPPET MASTER.You really have got to hand it to these People. They been playing us like a ROLL of DICE.''EVERY MAN THINKS GOD IS ON HIS SIDE.THE RICH AND POWERFUL KNOW HE IS.''JEAN ANOUILH.And they believe that with every fiber of their being.And that my friends,is what makes them so Dangerous.It's their God given right to rule the WORLD,by any means possible.The Republican Party is the party of the rich and powerful,we all know that.Thats not even open for discussion.The party of no,lower taxes,trickle down,God,guns and gays,Ayn Rand,Ryan,Palin,Fox News,wing-nut radio,Koch brothers,and the list goes on and on.If they had their way,their would be no GOVERNMENT.Thats their GOAL.The DEMOCRATIC PARTY is the lesser of TWO EVILS.Thats all we got left.I'am third generation blue collar Irish Catholic,who voted for Obama both times.Do I think Obama is a decent man? YES.Do I think Obama is a ELITIST,who thinks he's the smartest guy in the room,with that Ivy League Mentality.YES.This trade deal with Korea only corroborates that Mentality.BARACK OBAMA is a CORPORATE TROJAN HORSE. But he's all we got.

    The DEMOCRATIC PARTY is the lesser of TWO EVILS?


    That's all we got left.


    If they had their way, their would be no GOVERNMENT.
    You mean like how it is now, non-functional?

    Thats not even open for discussion. The party of no,lower taxes,trickle down,God,guns and gays,Ayn Rand,Ryan,Palin,Fox News,wing-nut radio,Koch brothers.
    You mean the Koch Brothers who started and provided funding for the (DLC) Democrat Leadership Council back in the 1980's.

    The last paragraph says it all.' 'Benefits only a small minority of WEALTHY INDIVIDUALS. They reap the benefits, while other AMERICANS LOSE THEIR JOBS.''
    Those new EPA rules are a perfect example. How many union coal companies were shut down because of it? How about those illegals receiving more support than are veterans, and the rest of the America?

    ''EVERY MAN THINKS GOD IS ON HIS SIDE.THE RICH AND POWERFUL KNOW HE IS.''JEAN ANOUILH.
    Jean Anouilh, the French Nazi collaborator in WWII? Yeah, we all know who his God was, and it is the opposite of Christianity.

    And they believe that with every fiber of their being. And that my friends, is what makes them so Dangerous. It's their God given right to rule the WORLD, by any means possible.
    So the murdering of Jews was their God given right? Gee-wiz.

    You really have got to hand it to these People. They been playing us like a ROLL of DICE.
    And your their spokes person trying to put everyone into a trance with your evil, sick, BS.

    Are you sure you work for ABF?

    Noodles, keep bashing away. You have became ridiculous with your accusations.
    wizards attempt to voice his thoughts aren't any different then yours, except he doesn't call you evil or sick.
    The comment from Jean Anouilh can be taken in other ways and you spoke what I thought ... the rich and powerful are controlled by Satan.
    Just like the far reaching right wingers are.

    Is that you ?
