I support H.R. 156 ("To provide for the withdrawal of the United States from the North American Free Trade") because... NAFTA has done absolutely nothing to help the working people of Arizona. It is time to end the progression of the New World Order in America, and bring our industry back home.

I support H.R. 156 ("To provide for the withdrawal of the United States from the North American Free Trade") because the amount of U.S. companies that shut down their American companies and went to other countries for cheaper labor has devastated the job market in the U.S. If these companies find it costing them more to import their goods into the country, then they will return creating more jobs for the American people. There will be less of the population on government aid which means the funding for aid saved can go back into the general funds.

I support H.R. 156 ("To provide for the withdrawal of the United States from the North American Free Trade") because this has done nothing more than shift domestic manufacturing jobs to foreign lands. The US needs to support the People of this country, not the interest of corporate elite.

I oppose H.R. 156 ("To provide for the withdrawal of the United States from the North American Free Trade") because apparently I have been misinformed about the benefits of NAFTA. I was genuinely surprised to find that jobs were not lost - employment actually rose! (http://blog.heritage.org/2013/12/01/tea-party-supporters-continue-back-free-trade/). I guess signing NAFTA was one of the few things Bill Clinton actually did correctly. Respectfully,
