I was watching McNeil-Lehrer a couple of nights ago, and they were interviewing several members of Congress about NAFTA. One of them said there was a great deal of misconception in the public about the effects of NAFTA. To demonstrate his point, he related a conversation with one of his constituents that went something like this: Anti-NAFTA Constituent: I'm against NAFTA!! CongressCritter: Oh, why is that? ANC: Because if NAFTA passes, they're going to export my job to Mexico. CC: And who do you work for? ANC: the city of Chicago.
