Especially all those Republicans who pushed for NAFTA and voted for it. If
you do a modicum of research on NAFTA, you will find that its genesis
predates Clinton. NAFTA was in fact a Republican agenda item.
"In three separate ceremonies in the three capitals on Dec. 17, 1992,
President Bush, Mexican President Salinas, and Canadian Prime Minister
Mulroney signed the historic North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).
The framework agreement proposed to eliminate restrictions on the flow of
goods, services, and investment in North America. The House of
Representatives approved NAFTA, by a vote of 234 to 200 on November 17,
1993, and the Senate voted 60 to 38 for approval on November 20. It was
signed into law by President Clinton on December 8, 1993, and took effect
on January 1, 1994."
