NAFTA started in 1994 after 6 years of negotiation by two Administrations Bush and Clinton. In 1992 Ross Perot said there would be a "Giant Sucking Sound" from across the border in Mexico if NAFTA passed. We use to have a positive trade balance with Mexico and the rest of the world. We now have huge trade deficits with most of our trading partners.

Free Trade policy and NAFTA has led to the loss of hundreds of thousands of high paying manufacturing jobs, 14 straight years of trade deficits, including a $700B trade deficit for this year alone. No empirical data supports the premise that Free Trade has benefited the US.

We have a lot of righties from the hard hit NE on this forum. Can someone tell me why this is a good thing for the US and why the conservative republicans feel that the US trade policy is working?
