U.S. lawmakers launch push to repeal NAFTA
A small group of U.S. lawmakers planned to offer legislation Thursday to withdraw from the North American Free Trade Agreement in the latest sign of congressional disillusionment with free-trade deals.

The bill spearheaded by Rep. Gene Taylor, a Mississippi Democrat, would require President Barack Obama to give Mexico and Canada six months notice that the United States will no longer be part of 16-year-old trade pact.

Taylor blames NAFTA for a loss of U.S. manufacturing jobs that he believes threatens national security, a spokesman for the conservative 10-term congressman said.

I doubt anything will come of it until it's too late (maybe that's now?). I think it will take a currency collapse for it to happen. By then we'll have a global currency.

Yesterday there was also legislation introduced in the US House to repeal all tax credits for US businesses that are moving or have all their labor based out of country.

Will it go anywhere?

At least some US House Representative are trying.

Obama criticized NAFTA during the 2008 presidential election campaign but has not followed through on threats to withdraw from the agreement if Canada and Mexico did not agree to revamp the pact's labor and environmental provisions.

But many Democrats are pushing for that and other changes to existing trade deals before considering any new deals such as the deals with South Korea, Colombia and Panama.

The House of Representatives is expected to vote later this year on whether the United States should remain a member of the World Trade Organization.

U.S. law allows House and Senate members to request a vote on that issue every five years. In 2005, 86 of the House's 435 members voted to withdraw from the world trade body.

They were not scared back then of being thrown out. They have to give you a bone and I guess Nafta is what they think will save their necks. THINK AGAIN. To LITTLE, to LATE.

Bush started it and Clinton finished it. That tells me all I need to know, the Repubs and Dems are in this together and you are the spoils of the war they fight together.

Well, if they cancelled NAFTA and phased it out over afew years, I can see a painful transition back to a healthy manufacturing base. It will likely bring another recession, riots, and social chaos where manufacturing has been for the past 2 decades.

Overall I think this is just lip service.

I will tell you that I have been across Canada in the past 2 years and I have seen the devastation that losing our manufacturing base has brought. I now live Detroit Michigan and abot 80% of the auto manufacturing has disappeared in the last 10 years. That's not including the textiles, electronics, and all the rest of hte things we take for granted that we have lost in the past 50 years.

It is time for renaissance of manufacturing ni America !!

Re: U.S. lawmakers launch push to repeal NAFTA
IT IS ALL POLITICAL B.S. UNLESS WE SEE A BILL PRESENTED & APPROVED.

Unless this has backing and a chance to be approved I see this as being nothing more than a "hot button" issue like flag burning that these idiots in DC role out every few years so people forget to vote then out of office.

Even if they present a bill we all know it has no chance...its a great idea but honestly when was the last time a great idea was passed in congress?

Same fracking defeatist attitude that keep getting the likes of the Bush's, Clinton's and now Obama's and a zillion Congress people re-elected.

Don't push it because "we all know it has no chance" is just like don't vote for Ross Perot because he has no chance or don't vote for Ron Paul because has no chance.

This mindest and its multi-sourced megaphones has to be silenced.

It is time for renaissance of manufacturing in America !!

Some any don't realize this because they only get their US House news from teh MSM an its talking head selected very few of the US House reps that fit the MSMs agenda.

If one watches the Special Order Speeches, one soon discovers there are in fact many many US House Representative that think like you, except they get no expousre to the People and hence no support from the rest of the people.
