Obama Urges Passage of Free Trade Deals
VOAVideo: Obama Urges Passage of Free Trade Deals
The Republican congressman whose committee oversees U.S. trade policy says Congress should act on pending free trade agreements within six months. Congressman Dave Camp says ratification of the trade deals with South Korea, Colombia and Panama is a "sure fire way" to create American jobs by growing U.S. exports. President Barack Obama made the same case during his State of the Union address Tuesday night when he urged a divided Congress to look for bipartisan solutions to grow the U.S. economy.
