Evidence of who your politicians work for:
Congress on Wednesday approved three long-stalled free-trade deals with Colombia, Panama and South Korea.
It sure isn't you.

Of interest, ABC World News had a segment on yesterday called "Made in America" where home builders were shown a list of domestic suppliers (e.g. for nails) and many saying that they'd consider it and also that buying locally made products keeps jobs here. In addition, there have been several reports our recently pointing out that the lower half of American workers have taken it on the chin due to 30 years of globalization, which caused their jobs to disappear or their wages to stagnate.

And in the face of that, Congress is continuing to pursue policies that will not help labor, but will help international businesses.
