1) Who forces people to buy from Walmart? ANSWER: Nobody
2) Why does Walmart sell clothing made in China, Vietnam, and Pakistan? ANS.: It's profitable for WMT.
3) Why do WMT's competitors do the same thing. ANS. Same reason as WMT's. People aren't smart enough to know how badly they are hurting themselves in the long run.
As a matter of professional courtesy, a local lawyer is handling, pro-bono, a lawsuit by the family of a shark who died in a traffic accident in which a truck carrying a tank containing the shark, crashed over the edge of an embankment.
In the past 50 years, has there ever been a foreign trade agreement that was beneficial to America manufacturing workers? Why are the union sympathizers on this board not screaming for obama to veto this bill?
When I correctly said:"Less than 10% of the exports from China to the USA pass thru Walmart. Who is responsible for the other 90%?" ...the post got 6 thumbs down. Can you really change truth by voting it down?
Satellite data from NASA (through April 2014) shows that there has been no change in the earth's temperature in the past 16 years. In the nearly 20-year period before that, the world had warmed 0.2 degrees Centigrade.Personally, I prefer to support science-proven facts, not the U.N., and the Obama/Al Gore democrats.
The poverty rate in the United states has increased 19% under the administration of B. Obama. The people hurt the most are the very ones who voted for him and they will always continue to vote for democrats.
I think that the answer to your question is that the lobbyists were able to buy what they wanted. Every congressman who votes FOR Obama's foreign trade bill should be turned out the next time that they face re-election ...regardless of whether they are democrat or republican.
Obama has had the details of his foreign trade agreement classified so that the unions won't be able to estimate how many American jobs they will lose. Obama is trying to hide the facts about what a rotten deal this is for American workers.

In the nearly 20 year period before that, the world had warmed 0.2 degrees Centigrade. It is not possible to determine with 99.999% certainty whether this tiny (0.2 degrees) increase is manmade or due to natural causes. Claims to the contrary reinforce my belief that "MANMADE global warming" is an agenda being pushed to transfer wealth from the gullible.

Do I support the Made In America label?
Much of the clothing sold in all of the stores in America is made in either Pakistan, Vietnam, or China. It seems that Americans never look at the labels. They are oblivious to the bad effect that their behavior has on the American economy and potentially on our national security. milker knows this. He just wants to lay all the blame on Walmart, even though only 10% of Chinese exports to the USA pass thru Walmart.
Compare that $40 billion for defense to obama's $800 billion for shovel-ready jobs. Did that $800 billion end up in union pension funds? What happened to the money that was originally supposed to be in those pension funds? Who ended up with that money?
