The failings of the Republicans’ economic plan may be stark, but Democrats need a trade policy that follows through their critique. Democrats like Wall Street Senator Ron “Fetchboy” Wyden know that free trade policies are primarily enacted to redistribute income from the 99 to the 1 percent. Jobs are shipped overseas, or are created overseas, due to the fine print in the treaties. The difference between the old higher wages in the USA and the new lower wages overseas goes directly into the pockets of the 1 percent via higher corporate profits, rising dividends and soaring share prices. Like all Republicans, and Ron Wdyen, President Obama is prime supporter of these Free Income Redistribution Trade Treaties. They all know these treaties are enacted primarily to redistribute income as listed above, but they all are talented enough to pretend that they don’t understand the relationship between trade treaties and income redistribution. They lie. Ron Wyden is the biggest liar of them all.
