Hillary on NAFTA in Iowa: She Repudiates Her Husbands Trade Policies...Sort of

Hillary, being a true Clinton, is trying to pander to workers in Iowa by pretending to be against trade policies that have decimated our country, and the working class. She'll probably get away with it, just like always:
Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton told union leaders and Iowa voters her economic leadership should be judged by how well the middle class fares — and that trade agreements should be rejudged to see if they're helping or not.

With the presidents of four unions that are supporting her in the audience, Clinton tried Monday to address one of her biggest problems with labor — her husband's signing of the North American Free Trade Agreement.

"I think it is time that we assess trade agreements every five years to make sure they're meeting their goals or to make adjustments if they are not," the New York senator said. "And we should start by doing that with NAFTA."
