I read a list of his accomplishments….he is NO friend to the worker and to labor….I would to thank a friend and fellow blogger…Cottonmouth for the idea…..
- Voted YES on promoting free trade with Peru. (Nov 2007)
- Voted NO on assisting workers who lose jobs due to globalization. (Oct 2007)
- Voted YES on implementing CAFTA, Central America Free Trade. (Jul 2005)

- Voted YES on implementing US-Singapore free trade agreement. (Jul 2003)
- Voted YES on implementing free trade agreement with Chile. (Jul 2003)

None of this appears that he is a friend or has the best interests of labor at heart.
