Hayes lame excuses

Today in the Fayetteville Observer Robin Hayes claims to have flip flopped on Caft in exchange for concession on Chinese Textile imports.Lets look at the deal according to the Washington Post Nov. 5, 2005.
"The deal would begin on Jan. 1 and last through 2008 -- a concession by China, which wanted it to expire in 2007. It would allow imports of most major textile and apparel products from China to increase by 8 to 10 percent in 2006, by 13 percent in 2007 and by 17 percent in 2008 -- a concession by the United States, which had proposed keeping annual growth close to 7.5 percent."
Doesn't everyone like of deal like this in your business. Please Robin Hayes don't make any more deals. Oh I forgot the increase in imports from Vietnam. Lets send Robin Hayes home. GOTV


As lame as they are

Hayes gets to claim he got trade consessions and it's our job to continue pointing out that jobs continue to hemorrhage from the 8th District.

Thanks for pointing this out. I admit that I haven't spent enough time studying the trade consessions and whether they amount to much. I knew I'd heard that they were ineffective b/c China could send whatever they wanted through Central America.

Robin Hayes lied. Nobody died, but thousands of folks lost their jobs.

Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own.

Let me get this straight...

Hayes voted on CAFTA so China can increase their imports to the US by more than TWICE the rate the US had proposed.

That's a hell of a concession. Heckuva job there, Brownie Flipper.
