Clinton looks for NAFTA support
WASHINGTON — President
Clinton prodded corporate Ameri
ca Monday to do more to build
congressional support for the North
American Free Trade Agreement,
saying Europe and Japan will be
the big winners if the pact fails.
_ “You all have
to be missionar
ies,” he said at a
satellite “town
hall” meeting
sponsored by the
ITMIW Commerce. The
meeting was
piped to business
groups in more than 200 sites around
the nation.
Clinton said U.S. efforts to win
a new set of liberalized world trad
ing rules—talks long under way in
Geneva — could be torpedoed if
the agreement to end trade barriers
with Mexico and Canada is reject
Furthermore, he said that rejec
tion of the pact — scheduled for a
House vote on Nov. 17 — would
send Europe and Japan swarming
over the Mexican market “1 ike fl ies
on a june bug.”
Organized labor claims the pact
will cost jobs and depress wages at
home. The administration appears
to be about 50 votes short of the
votes needed to pass the agreement
in the House.
Clinton acknowledged he was
in an uphill fight but predicted he
The idea that America is going to shrivel up
if we adopt this trade agreement is ridicu

would win in the cnU.
Critics claim that U.S. compa
nies will be attracted to low wages
in Mexico if the pact passes and
relocate their plants there.
Clinton said that companies can
already do this, or move to even
lower-wage countries like Haiti.

“The idea that America is going
to shrivel up if we adopt this trade
agreement is ridiculous,” Clinton
said, noting that the Mexican econ
omy is tiny compared to that of the
United States.
Mexico’s gross domestic prod
uct is about 4 percent to 5 percent
that of the United States.

State Hospital in 1967 along with two
other inmates, touching off the big
