MOCs in the News: How Have They Voted?

We at Eyes on Trade realize that members of Congress have a wide stance on trade issues, and that even some unlikely members have a history of voting the fair trade position. Here's the rundown on MOCs in the news:

  • Sen. Larry Craig (R-Idaho) has a better record on trade issues than some of the Democratic candidates for president! He voted against NAFTA, WTO, CAFTA, and NAFTA expansion to Chile and Singapore. But as he's been in office for a long time, that still brings it to only a 36% fair trade vote record.
  • Sen. John Warner (R-Va.) just announced his retirement. While he's gotten some respect on other issues, he has a whopping 0% fair trade voting record.
  • Sen. Tim Johnson (D-S.D.) just returned to work after a hospitalization. He has a 64% fair trade voting record - about the same as Sen. John Edwards (D-N.C.). He voted against NAFTA and every expansion of it to other countries.
