LIBERAL MEDIA SAYS DEMOCRATS IN TROUBLE

Gannett, the nation’s largest newspaper chain reported in its Sept. 3-6 weekend edition of USA Today that the Democrats could be in peril this November. “Democratic congressional candidates face a political landscape even rockier than those in 1994 and 2006 that ended with election upheavals that changed control of Congress, a USA Today/Gallup Poll finds.” True, but misleading.
In 1994, the Democrats lost control of the House and Senate because the Democratic majority enacted what has proven to be the biggest “jobs export bill” in the history of the world—a treaty that the US Senate was afraid to ratify. So, the Senate disguised the treaty as a jobs incentive bill called the North American Free Trade Agreement [NAFTA] and enacted it. As he signed the legislation into law, President Bill Clinton. Clinton assured the American people that NAFTA was a piece of legislation that would increase jobs in the United States. Of course, we now know that Clinton lied. It was never designed to be a jobs bill—except in the third world where our jobs were going to be sent. And, course, what the legislation provided was a swinging door that swung both ways. Jobs out. Foreign-made, American-branded goods back in. Add to that Bill Clinton’s regressive tax hike that went back a year and taxed the American people for George H.W. Bush’s last year in office. The media noted it was the largest tax increase in the history of the world—until Barack Hussein Obama arrived in Washington.
