    A recent lobby by the AFL-CIO to request renegotiation of the ROK-US FTA is a serious blow to the faith the world has in America.

    Besides, the ROK-US FTA had been negotiated under the working-level talks to reflect understandings and benefits of both parties. Requesting a renegotiation is utterly dismantling the previous efforts which is based on rational judgements.

    Most of all, the renegotiation of ROK-US FTA is against the foreign policy of Obama Administration which emphasized the trust and cooperation between the allies.
    Therefore, the U.S congress should swiftly ratify the agreement to promote ROK-US alliance and the worldwide cooperation.

    FYI

    source

    How nice for superwealthy investors...particularly banks of couse.. you'll see why soon enough.

    They can take advantage of Korean cheap labor and increase their profits by investing in Korean manufacturing..at the expense of the American manufacturing

    Doubt that this policy ends up hurting our economy FREE TRADERS?

    Okay, then read the following trade imbalance figures.



    year trade imbalance with Korea

    2008 $18.4840 billion
    2007 $12.9750 billion
    2006 $13.3620 billion
    2005 $16.0165 billion
    2004 $19.7555 billion
    2003 $13.1568 billion
    2002 $12.9960 billion
    2001 $13.0008 billion
    2000 $12.4777 billion

    Our trade policies are bleeding wounds.

    The wealth of the USA flows into other natinal economies and our master class are the people who most benefit from that state of affairs, while at the American working class and national economy itself pays for their good fortune.

    Who benefits MOST in America from this insane trade policy (in other words why is American doing this to ITSELF?

    So let's think about this shall we?

    The biggest benficiaries in this trade policy are AGricultural conglomerates and BANKS.

    The biggest losers are manufact6uring workers thoughout the USA...not the manufacturers themselves, because they're INVESTING IN KOREA..just the workers AND THE AMERICAN ECONOMY ITSELF SUFFER.

    Can you say CLASS WAR, citizens?

    If you can't bring yourself to admit that's what's going on, don't worry about it...

    I can.
