What a joke.

They are all a joke. Isn't that what OWS is about? Everything the govt does is rife with greed. When the govt is f**k'd everywhere you look, how can you expect a coherent concise message in protest?

OWS is about something?

The company was approved under the pilot program in 2009 before President Barack Obama's administration cancelled it. Mexico retaliated by placing tariffs on 99 agricultural products worth more than $2 billion annually.
Mexico cut the tariffs in half this summer after Obama and Mexican President Felipe Calderon approved an inspection and monitoring program for the companies that had been approved in 2009. The Mexican government has vowed to lift the rest once the truck heads out of the border zone Friday.
"We're really excited," Perez said. "Now we can provide door-to-door service, so it's about a 15 percent savings for companies."
Sounds like he tried to stop it but **** got expensive.

No matter what any president does they're damned... If Obama would have crushed it again and the tarrifs went up again people would be pissed he isn't doing something about the price of burritos.

Its a sad day when the POTUS can be held hostage by MEXICO!

If it really does cost us 100K jobs, the bill will be much more than 2 billion.

Might as well.
