USMCA

image: fake news

While the LONG-TERM UNEMPLOYMENT ELIMINATION ACT OF 2019 collects dust in Congress, our empress in chief lulled us to sleep last month with THESE HOLLOW WORDS:

Today, here we are here to celebrate the one-year anniversary of the White Houses Pledge to America’s Workers, a call to action for business and industry to create more and better jobs for Americans by providing education and skills for American students and workers.

To add INSULT TO INJURY, Our VP in chief spits in the face of the long-term unemployed - and all U.S. workers - trying to push the newest NAFTA on us as another godsend - the USMCA.

United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement - The United States has reached an agreement with Mexico and Canada in the renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). When finalized and implemented, the new United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) will create more balanced, reciprocal trade that supports high-paying jobs for Americans and grows the North American economy.

Vice President Mike Pence says The American People deserve better

Clarksville Online
October 23, 2019

On Monday, October 21st, 2019, U.S. Vice President Mike Pence traveled to Pennsylvania and got a firsthand look at SCHOTT - North Americas original optical glass manufacturing plant in the United States. The facility first opened its doors 50 years ago.

“Since then, this facility, I’m told, has expanded nearly five times over,” he said.

SCHOTT’s success story symbolizes the manufacturing renaissance that’s happened under U.S. President Donald J. Trump. In the less than 3 years since Election Day 2016, SCHOTT has invested $32 million in this one facility alone and expanded its workforce by 15 percent. Then, they watched their sales soar by a third.

“Each one of you are proving every single day that as long as the playing field is level, American workers can out-compete, out-innovate, and out-work anybody in the world,” the Vice President told employees.

But that level playing field is at risk, despite President Trump’s continued push to renegotiate America’s aging, failing trade deals. The reason is that when it comes to our most important trading relationship - that with Canada and Mexico, covered by the outdated NAFTA - House Democrats continue to shelve President Trumps new deal.

USMCA or the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, updates the quarter-century old NAFTA to the tune of a projected $68 billion in new economic growth. That amounts to another 175,000 jobs, of which 50,000 will be on factory floors across America.

“As I stand here today, the USMCA is languishing in the House of Representatives,” Vice President Pence said. “You see the headlines. These days, Democrats are spending all their time on endless investigations and a partisan impeachment. But the American people deserve better.”

States like Pennsylvania can’t afford this political waiting game. Today, the Keystone State exports more than $15 billion of its goods and services to Canada and Mexico. That number would dramatically increase if USMCA passes.

Democrats wrongly assume that obstructing and declining to update NAFTA will hurt President Trump politically. Theyre wrong. But more important, putting partisan politics before the very labor and environmental improvements they once fought for is Washington at its swampiest.

House Democrats, Speaker Nancy Pelosi claims your 24/7 hearing circus won’t keep Congress from doing its job. Prove it. Pass USMCA, and put American workers first.
