Just Listen To The First 5 Minutes

Before I tell you what the subject is, just click this to listen to the first five minutes of Sunday night’s Virtually Speaking: (Actually skip in about 1:35 and then listen to five minutes.)

If you are like me (and who isn’t?) you’ll be hooked. Now that you’re into it, how about the first five minutes of this press call yesterday:

OK, now that the cat is out of the bag, these audio tracks are about one of the most interesting, exciting subjects there is: trade agreements and trade deficits.

Here’s the thing. We have a trade deficit of up to $500 billion each year. That’s upwards of $500 billion worth of orders that should be going to businesses that make or do things inside the U.S. That’s up to $500 billion worth of hiring and businesses and factories (re)opening, and all their suppliers booming, and the stores around those businesses and factories and suppliers booming, too.

So call and ask your member of Congress and your senators what they are going to do about this enormous, humongous trade deficit. This is the deficit that people should be worried about, not the budget deficit. And especially ask candidates this fall. Get this on the agenda, because getting it on the agenda will bring back jobs and businesses and factories and higher wages and all the things that go with that.

Now, for something totally unrelated, “Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis: President Barack Obama.”
