KEY VOTE ALERT
"YES" ON THE COLOMBIA, PANAMA, AND KOREA FREE TRADE AGREEMENTS

The Club for Growth urges all members of Congress to vote “YES” on the Free Trade Agreements with Colombia (H.R. 3078), Panama (H.R. 3079), and Korea (H.R. 3080). We expect the house to begin to consider the trade agreements as soon as today. A vote on each Free Trade Agreement will be included in the Club’s 2011 Congressional Scorecard.

Widening the circle of people with whom we transact - including across political borders - brings benefits to consumers in the form of lower prices, greater variety, and better quality, and it allows companies to reap the benefits of innovation, specialization, and economies of scale that larger markets bring. Trade freedom is essential to prosperity, and expanding free markets as much as possible enhances that prosperity.

The Club for Growth has long supported expanding trade freedom, which passage of each individual Free Trade Agreement will do. Positive points will be given for voting in favor of each individual FTA.

Our Congressional Scorecard for the 112th Congress provides a comprehensive rating of how well or how poorly each member of Congress supports pro-growth, free-market policies and will be distributed to our members and to the public.
