  •  What the hell is Pelosi doing? NO MORE TRADE (0+ / 0-)

    I just read David Sirota's post  on dailykos, excerpted below.  If Pelosi does this, I will write letters to every editor I can reach to tell them what traitor she is to working Americans.  No deal, no how, no way.   Seven years with a 7% unemployment rate, and Michigan got nothing from Washington - not a dime.  Spinach growers let cows poop on their crop, and they get bailed out.  Enough of this NAFTA SHAFTA!  I expect you to stop her.  First Clinton screws us - now Pelosi.  

    "The New Democrats just sent out a press release announcing a major press conference with Ways and Means Committee Chairman Charlie Rangel (D-NY), Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus (D-MT), House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Bush Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson, Bush Trade Representative Susan Schwab and members of the New Democrats (aka. the faction of Democrats that have historically pushed lobbyist-written trade pacts and the bankruptcy bill). This is an event to announce a new series of "free" trade deals being pushed by the White House. Not a single progressive populist Democrat will be represented at this event, and worse, the New York Times now reports that Pelosi is indicating she may push the "free" trade package over the opposition of the majority of her Democratic caucus."
