Approve CAFTA Now

Miami Herald Editorial (free registration):

The Bush administration did the right thing to sign the Central American Free Trade Agreement last Friday despite protectionist cries from the left and the right of the political spectrum. The United States not only signaled its support for a poor region that needs the economic boost, but for free trade itself, which increasingly has come under attack in this election season...

There is... no reason for Congress to delay a vote on this issue until after the election, as many fear will happen. Any member of Congress who can understand the relationship between free trade and economic growth should be able to explain to constituents that CAFTA is a winning proposition.
