Forum Post: The Democrats and Republicans are both corrupt.

Clinton and Gore signed NAFTA and MFN for China. The result? Millions of lost U.S. manufacturing jobs and massive trade deficits. Bush continued these policies (especially on China) and added CAFTA. Obama has done nothing about China despite his campaign promises, and just pushed the Panama, Colombia, and Korea FTA's through Congress.

Both parties are the same-- they follow the dictates of Wall Street.

If 'Occupy Wall Street' can accomplish one thing, it should be to unite Americans across the voting spectrum. Washington is corrupt. We need to save our manufacturing sector before it's too late.

Clinton modified the agreement to protect more american workers while the parties in congress ratified the treaties and clauses. Presidents cannot enter into treaties without approval from congress.

We need to try to coerce companies to bring back more jobs and buy less from China.

Yup, agreed. We have to reform our trade policies or we'll keep seeing jobs moving overseas.
