How's those free trade agreements working out?

Did our political leaders lie to us about its merits?

Yet another indicator that Obama's economic policies are not working. Real world results are actually contrary to what the administration would have us believe. They have an anti-business climate that inhibits economic growth.

The USA currently has the highest business taxes in the entire world. And we also have red tape regulations and restrictions that discourage new business growth. It's very much an anti-business climate and environment.

It's little wonder companies have already moved and are continuing their moving overseas and taking millions of high-paying manufacturing jobs with them. Over 6 million so far. Now we have to import the items we used to produce right here in the good old USA. Thus, this high trade deficit. Sad. Very sad.

Objectified -

You appear to be saying that US corporations are leaving the US and moving to other countries with lower corporate tax rates.

Who for instance?

Plenty of companies employ people overseas because of cheap labor, but that has nothing to do with corporate tax rates.
