America needs jobs. More than 40 million people are at the poverty level. There are record numbers of requests for basic needs. We have to stop signing trade agreements that give our jobs to foreign countries. There are more than 10 million American jobs in China alone.

The only beneficiaries are CEOs of American companies. China subsidizes its industries, dumps products, manipulates currency and counterfeits American products and is starting to pollute our air.

If Congress won't support cancelling these trade agreements, we don't need them in office. They are not supporting the American people. Elections are coming.

At the end of World War II, we rebuilt the economies of Europe and Japan, and would you believe we don't have the money to rebuild one bridge that's badly needed?
