From Gerald Pollack or Northampton, Pa, whose letter was published in the Bucks County Courier Times today:
Once again Mike Fitzpatrick (R – U.S. House, 8th District) has shown his true colors by voting for CAFTA.(And to help in that effort, a link to the Patrick Murphy for Congress site appears on this page.)
It lowers trade barriers between the United States and South American countries (My note: this ties into the Costa Rica story I put up here yesterday). What that means is a loss of American jobs that pay very low wages to workers. This bill also harms U.S. sugar growers and textile manufacturers.
We should remind Mike Fitzpatrick he was sent to Congress to protect jobs, not to vote to give them away. Let’s show Mike Fitzpatrick in November 2006 what it means to lose a job.
