Clinton on KORUS FTA


[Hilary Clinton] will oppose the free-trade agreement with South Korea — and for the narrowest of special-interest reasons… Ms. Clinton objects that South Korean manufacturers sell many more cars here than do American carmakers over there. Never mind that the agreement requires Korea to remove discriminatory tariffs and taxes on U.S. cars; never mind that U.S. tariffs on Korean cars can “snap back” if Korea doesn’t keep its word. Not good enough, says Ms. Clinton. What more could she have wanted for Detroit? She won’t say.
