  •  Enforce Smart Trade Policy that puts Workers 1st (11+ / 0-)

    Enforce Smart Trade Policy, which always asks this one question first

    "Is it good for the American Worker?"

    Smarter Trade That Puts Workers First

    Washington isn't looking out for them. Washington is too busy looking out for big business and protecting irresponsible corporations.

    Trade has become a bad word for working Americans for a simple reason - our trade policies have been bad for working Americans. Washington looks at every trade deal and asks one question, and only one question - is it good for corporate profits?

    We need a new era in trade policy. We need "smart trade" policies that American workers can say yes to

    In my first year in office, I will spend time working with Congress to get our trade policies straight -- policies which ensure that Americans workers finally begin to see benefits from the global economy.

    Free Trade vs Smart Trade, Edwards takes on the Supply-Siders

    It takes a long time to bring the past up to the present -- Franklin D. Roosevelt
