Concerned about trade partnership

COURTESY TO THE BELLINGHAM HERALDApril 19, 2014 

I think of myself as conservative, but I agree with the letter in April 16's Bellingham Herald about the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

I believe NAFTA led to the destruction of many, many traditional U.S. manufacturing jobs. Trans-Pacific Partnership is the same idea, with even lower-wage competition, and would destroy many or most of the remaining U.S. manufacturing jobs.
