"The White House says the Korean agreement could put as many as 70,000 Americans to work, welcome news with the latest unemployment figures showing nearly stagnant job growth. Exports of U.S. goods to South Korea could soar to $10 billion, a prospect that cheered the U.S. Chamber of Commerce as well as some Republicans. The deal is subject to congressional approval"

Is that the same White House that spent $832 billion dollars to give us 8% unemployment?...err...17% combined un and under?

OR...

If this holds true, it would bring the unemployment rate from it's now almost record high of 9.8%, (NOT stagnant as the article maintains), back to it's stagnant level of 9.6%.

70,000 jobs sounds like a lot of jobs, but we need millions. The ONLY thing that will create jobs on as large a scale as the US needs is economic freedom.

Something the left has a big problem with.

Also, given that small business creates 70% of new jobs, how will this help them?

That being said, I hope this lives up to it's hype. We need jobs and should take whatever we can get.

A cracker is a gormet meal to a starving man.

South Korea would allow the U.S. to lift a 2.5 percent tariff on Korean cars in five years, instead of cutting the tariff right away. Each U.S. automaker could export 25,000 cars to South Korea as long as they met U.S. safety standards; disputes over safety standards had effectively stood as a barrier to U.S. auto exports into Korea. A U.S. tariff on Korean trucks would be phased out and South Korea would eliminate its tariff on U.S. trucks immediately.
It would be batter if they just liberalized trade completely, any and all American business being able to do business with any country in the world without restriction would be a huge advantage for us.
