Pro-corporate, neo-liberal trade policies have damaged the environment, promoted human rights abuses, environmental degradation, outsourcing of American jobs and an international race to the bottom. It's time that U.S trade policy reflects fair trade as opposed to so called free trade, we shall promote consumer protection and gainful employment across the globe.
Our top priority in regards to trade needs to be keeping jobs in the United States. I support the Outsourcing Prevention Act which would, end federal contracts to companies engaging in outsourcing, create additional taxes on companies who outsource and prohibit corporate executives from profiting off of outsourcing.
I will work with congress to renegotiate NAFTA, to make it more fair to all parties involved and to add provisions that protect workers, consumers and the environment.
I will oppose any new neo-liberal trade agreements.
