This Legislation was introduced by the Senator of my state, Byron Dorgan.
The Legisltation states that no laws that provide safeguards against unfair foreign trade practices should be weakened (further weakening of the
Safeguards causes an even already disasterious trade deficit to become larger").
China has been notorius for unfair trade practices and the issue has been raised by several members of Congress to do something about it.
Obama states he is pro-China and for continued trade, even under the unfair practices China is conducting, thus creating the larger Trade Deficit.
Why would he not want to keep strong safeguards against such practices strong? Is he batting for China on this one?
"NO" Vote 232: H R 2862: Dorgan Amdt. No. 1665; To prohibit weakening any law that provides safeguards from unfair foreign trade practices.
