Quotes-start.png "But as Democrats cry crocodile tears about labor unions and wax about their human-rights sensitivities as their excuse to deny Colombia free trade, they're leaving out one group of interests: Colombia's ordinary people. In polls, they have shown they favor free trade by an 80% margin with no way of showing it other than by standing at freeway off-ramps and holding up their arms. They're among the 44 million people who would be punished by Congress' stone-hearted refusal to permit U.S.-Colombia free trade." Quotes-end.png
