Withdraw from NAFTA; oppose CAFTA

Q: Should we support & expand free trade?

A: Oppose. I support withdrawal of the United States from treaties of obligation which support free trade policies, including the Free Trade Area of the Americas, Central American Free Trade Agreement and North American Free Trade Agreement. I support policies which encourage fair trade, local production, sustainable production, job creation and pay a living wage.
