Last week (Jan 6, 2013) I accompanied Ken Davis (former Assistant Secretary of Commerce, former VP & CFO of IBM) in a meeting with Congressman Jim Himes in his Stamford office.  Our agenda was to urge Mr. Himes to recognize the crisis of America's huge chronic trade deficits, and to urge him to vote NO on the impending Fast Track legislation, and NO on the NAFTA-style "Trans-Pacific Partnership" and US-EU "Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership" Free Trade treaties that Fast Track is aimed at.
