Ignoring the will of his constituents and the devastating results that the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) has had on his state, Rep. Mike Fitzpatrick (R-Pa.) became a deciding “yes” vote for a six-nation NAFTA expansion called the Central America Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA), which eked through the House of Representatives 217 to 215. Many of Fitzpatrick’s constituents were opposed to both trade agreements, as Pennsylvania has lost nearly a quarter of its manufacturing jobs since NAFTA.
