US free trade agreement with Panama is stuck in impasse between President Obama and the Republicans

Friday, August 26, 2011

\ Even with almost zero common ground between them, President Obama and Republicans in Congress generally concur on the need for free-trade agreements with South Korea, Colombia and Panama.\ \ But they disagree on whose fault it is that those agreements — years in the making — have still not been approved.\ \ For weeks, President Obama has derided Congress for failing to pass the agreements, as well as a measure that would provide money to assist workers displaced by foreign competition.\ \ Original source: New York Times\ \ \ \ \ \
