Last week Senator Stabbenow voted against CAFTA:
I am concerned that with CAFTA we are once again rushing into a trade agreement that doesn’t help – and in fact – has the potential to hurt American workers and our families. We all want trade, but we want trade agreements that involve exporting products, not jobs.
Michigan certainly will not benefit, because this agreement does not provide a meaningful export market for Michigan manufacturers. I am very concerned about this, particularly at a time when we have the highest unemployment rate in the country.
