At a time of high unemployment, it’s difficult to fathom why the President would be fighting to increase our trade deficit and ship tens of thousands of jobs overseas by pushing his NAFTA-style trade deal with Korea.

If these constitute the “left flank” of the political discussion around the pressing issue of health care costs in America, we as a country are screwed.
