CAFTA Damage Report: Rep. Robin Hayes (R-N.C.)

Turning his back on the textile and apparel workers in North Carolina’s 8th District, Rep. Robin Hayes (R-N.C.-8) dramatically reversed his previous opposition to the Central America Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA) expansion of NAFTA to become a deciding last vote that delivered CAFTA’s 217-215 passage, after being made vague promises by Republican leaders to help the U.S. textile and apparel industry. Unbelievably, this is the second time Hayes has switched his vote on a major piece of trade legislation.
