Should the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement Replace NAFTA?

Argument in favor

The USMCA will provide a much-needed modernization of the trading relationship between the U.S., Mexico, and Canada. This bipartisan trade agreement will create jobs in the U.S., strengthen American manufacturing & intellectual property, open markets to U.S. exporters, and contains strong enforcement mechanisms to protect labor and environmental interests.

Now that it has been improved and not just renamed by tariff man let’s get it done. And let’s remove Trump so we don’t have an idiot destroying our democracy. His treatment of our allies and praise for murderous dictators undermines our ability to build strong coalitions to deal with countries like China.

The USMCA certainly needs some adjusting to assure that it remains an equitable agreement for all counties involved and addresses some key issues like carbon footprint. But, at this time it appears to be generally in the best interests of all of the countries involved- so YEA. The other issues can be addressed separately in the future via negotiations or other legislation- just like NAFTA could have been equitably ‘adjusted’ with none of the drama or economic impact.

If labor supports it and it will be a better deal for workers in all three countries, then I say we sign it. We need to move forward.

Argument opposed

While it may be bipartisan, the USMCA doesn’t do enough to open markets in Mexico & Canada to U.S. exporters or contain strong enough protections for the environment and workers. It should include stringent provisions to bind the U.S., Mexico, and Canada to reducing carbon emissions and fighting climate change. The USMCA won’t be an improvement on NAFTA.

No longer should any international agreements be signed if they don’t include strong environmental protections. We MUST hold ourselves and our partners hostage to protect the future of our planet and our children’s health and well being!

This deal is NAFTA, the substance hasn’t significantly changed. This has been a waste of legislative time and taxpayer money; simply to pay lip service to something that isn’t being changed?

No new deals under trumps purview. That asshole was born rich and goes around losing money from one bankruptcy to another. I don’t trust for one second that the “new deal” will be “better” for us OR our partners. I think trump will just be finding clever ways to syphon money out of the taxpayer coffers for himself. He wants to hold all the presidential events at his properties for the same reason. He’s a greedy, arrogant, selfish, stupid son of a bitch. Oh and he’s an impeached criminal. #FactsMatter

    This is a disgrace. Barely has any environmental protections. Democrats and Republicans alike should be ashamed of themselves.

    The new agreement, USMCA, is essentially NAFTA with a few more worker protections in place. It’s progress. I’ll take it.

    Climate Change is a hoax and is nothing more than a way to raise taxes for the Globalist. Climate is cyclical. Always has been always will be. Man cannot change climate, but saving the rain forest will have a much more positive affect for the future as well as protecting the oceans from dumping.

    We have to understand that when you are dealing with other people or other countries, unless you are the king of the world you have to compromise to let everyone get something, or no one will get anything.

    The senator who opposes this seems to have blinders on. Ah, more like he hates President Trump so much and doesn’t support anything he supports that would actually benefit all of our countries and do good. It’s already been established that Mexico wants it and Canada wants so this should be signed and implemented. Nancy Pelosi has sat on this way too long. Of course we know she and Democrats are waiting and think President Trump’s demise is eminent. Celebrate your victory because a FAIR trial cometh in January! Yeah, Democrats are waiting to tweak it and take credit for it. God’s got an army marching throughout this land, prayer is in our arsenal and we pray God’s deliverance is at hand!!

    First of all United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) is NAFA just dusted off, a little more works protection, just put the industry and works though hell for no real reason? Things that could have been resolved with out all the drama. Just getting the economy functioning again is great. Agreements on economy are an ongoing for all presidents, Trump likes to bully, intimidate, harass, extort and threaten is his form of negotiation, this is art of the deal, mob boss cartel, Plus it’s show time for him, anytime. As for China we bowered money from China to support the farmers because of the tariffs trump put on China that is causing farmers to go bankrupt? China laughing all the way to the bank!

    Ninety percent of the new agreement is NAFTA. But the remaining ten percent are improvements to the former. It's a step in the right direction.

    Based on the Fact Sheet showing the differences/improvements it should be ratified. The U.S. should provide training/retraining opportunities, job counseling and financial support for displaced workers and not just leave those workers to fend for themselves. There have been companies and their employees displaced as result of trade agreements in the past and that has created much of the anger attributed to trade agreements but people in each of the partners countries lost jobs. Some of the wiser countries retrained their people for new opportunities. This is something the U.S. has not seen fit to do on a large scale.

    Thank God President Trump made this happen with all the great work he and his team put into it. It’s obvious Pelosi wants to take credit because the Democrats need a win. Corrupt Pelosi is like the dumb valley girl who has to cheat off the nerdy smart girl. We see through her FAKE crocodile tears about impeachment. She’s owned, like a prostitute, by powerful deep staters who make her dance to their tune. Drain the swamp!! Trump/Pence 2020! KAG!
