    However, as i mentioned above, we need to be proactive to show that there is an alternative to the current "free trade" model.  This is a long fight and will go beyond this Congress and beyond the three pending FTAs.  It is important that we build as much support for a responsible trade policy now as things like the Trans-Pacific Partnership, Doha, and other potential free trade agreements come down the pike.  

    NAFTA and CAFTA both became law, and we have had to live with the consequences.  But simply opposing FTAs will not get us the desired results.  We need to provide an alternative policy, and this legislation is a start.
