Trade Shade

President Obama refers to Senator Elizabeth Warren by her first name. That’s sexist? How simplistic can you get. Oh yes. Warren’s trade agreement dissent. Her throwaway clichés rarely have heft. This one is a doozy. It’s a global economy, Senator W. That ship has sailed. American workers will never make widgets again. Labor costs (thanks unions) are too high here. If we don’t want a military industrial complex which survives only by waging wars, then we need trading partners to retain leverage for alliances with countries in the Pacific Rim. That way we can afford to spend our money on infrastructure. Roads. Bridges. RAILROADS. Instead of tanks and bombs. Now, that’s simple, Lizzie.
