Why Free-Trade Agreements Are Critical

According to South Florida, Rep. Allen West (a Republican congressman from Florida's 22nd District, pictured), free-trade agreements are critical.
U.S. exports are at an all-time high, and our small businesses deserve a lot of the credit. According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, small businesses account for nearly 97 percent of all U.S. exporters in 2007 and support nearly 4 million U.S. jobs. I urge President Obama and those in the Senate to work with the House to pass these free-trade agreements and continue this positive trend.
