    With the present bleeding of jobs to foreign countries this deal is another blow to the American worker.  The corporations are begging for more access to lower wage pools to produce their products and congress is only to happy to oblige.

    The promise of more American jobs in the IT sector and management positions is one of the promises as well as better patent protections but how does that help the average American Worker.

    More education at inflated rates no one can afford for jobs that are mediocre at best.

      While Obama knows the Chinese are intentionally devaluing their currency and it's killing American Jobs he refuses to do anything about it.

    If everyone in the world has to buy oil with dollars, how do they get those dollars but sell their stuff in US. Has to be that way. Since many foreign countries have lower wages and benefits,
    seems American jobs have to go overseas to compete.

      It is funny that for capitalism to work it needs slave labor from a communist regime to work.  Not much has changed, the plantations in the pre cival war needed slave labor as well.  The US has no problem with morality when it comes to the almighty dollar.
