statement on trade talks and a tentative agreement between U.S.
CLEVELAND/SANDUSKY/TOLEDO, August 27, 2018:
Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur, (OH-09), released the following
statement after receiving an information item from the Trump
Administration that the United States and Mexico reached a
tentative trade agreement on a range of issues relative to
“Congress must have its say on this Administration’s NAFTA,”
said Kaptur. “I hope for a vote of the Congress on whether the
President and his team have lived up to the promises he made to
America’s workers in his 2016 campaign. Simply, any new North
American trade agreement must raise wages and create a level
playing field across the board. We must end the job outsourcing
bonanza that has taken hold since NAFTA’s passage in 1994.
Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur
“The details and the fine print matter more than a hasty
self-proclaimed victory. As someone who fought with all I had to
prevent NAFTA’s passage and the trauma it wrought on American
workers, I know the devil is in the details. I look forward to
reviewing the details of this agreement as well as the issues
that remain with Canadian negotiators in the days and weeks to
come,” Kaptur concluded.
