Farm Jobs Being Lost - Colombia Trade Agreement Not Submitted For Ratification

$2.8 billion in tariffs paid by American business needlessly because trade agreement, signed three years ago with Colombia, has not been submitted by Obama to Congress for ratification.

Canada and other nations that signed agreements with Colombia after the US, are busy dividing, among themselves, our share of the market there.

This article says that an estimated $700 million in agriculture exports and 14,000 jobs have been lost.

Mr. President, move this bill to the Congress.
