Everyone Should Support CAFTA
If you buy a shirt today that was made in Honduras or Nicaragua, there is a greater than 70 percent chance that it is made of U.S.-produced fabric; the chance that a competing product from China would be made of U.S. components is less than one-tenth of 1 percent.
Even Jimmy Carter gets it! He told lawmakers that the pact is important to help protect and promote democracy in the Western hemisphere. Absent the looney left's absurd notion that Central Americans really oppose CAFTA, the deal is a no-brainer to Left and Right alike.
Yet for some reason the bill seems unlikely to have the support necessary to pass Congress. What a shame.
