CAFTA Damage Report: Rep. Robert B. Aderholt (R-Ala.)

After the Bush administration explicitly rejected his demands that the Central America Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA) not include provisions harmful to Alabama’s sock industry, Rep. Robert Aderholt (R-Ala.-4) dramatically reversed his opposition to the expansion of NAFTA to six countries and became a deciding "yes" vote on CAFTA. Aderholt explained his sudden reversal by stating that Republican leaders had pledged to help the sock industry. These pledges, however, have been shown to be completely unenforceable. Constituents of Aderholt's 4th District are wondering why Representative Aderholt failed to stand up for their interests.
