Tony Blankley on CAFTA, Free Trade and the Sugar Lobby

Mayor Daley lost his fight with the Sugar lobby and the West Side lost more jobs when the Brach's Candy Factory closed.

Now Tony Blankley writes the Sugar lobby and anti-globalization left are teaming up too further impoverish Central Americans by locking them out of US markets.

I heard historian Timothy Garton Ash on WBEZ in February say the best thing the US and UK could do to reduce world poverty was drop trade barriers and drop our agricultural subsidies.

Blankley's expectations about Central American Free Trade agreement don't offer much hope.
