American taxpayers are expected to foot the bill for another wonderful program - a program that will grant permanent operating authority to Mexican trucking companies and provide equipment for their trucks.

Here is a snip from Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood's proposal:


The pilot allows Mexican trucks to operate on U.S.highways beyond the current border commercial zone and it allows Mexican carriers to obtain permanent operating authority from the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) after 18 months in the pilot program. That permanent authority could not be rescinded were Congress or the Administration to terminate the Mexican truck pilot program.
According to DeFazio, US taxpayers will be footing the bill to pay for Mexico's trucking companies to bypass American safety standards and theses Mexican trucking companies will be granted PERMANANT authority to operate in the US that cannot be rescinded should the program be terminated.

See article HERE

Gee, if I'm poor and have a crummy truck, will uncle Sam help me and give me 'permanent operating authority' and buy equipment as well? Do I also get a pass on safety standards?

Here's the way I read this. Not as something that should anger Americans because of the economy or because they can't find homes. I see this with binoculars having heard all this long, long ago. Just another benchmark on the road to one world government.
