STOPCAFTA.com Action Alert Email - July 1, 2005
Now the battle shifts to the House, which is expected to vote on 
CAFTA in
mid- to late-July. The relatively close Senate vote provides 
encouragement
that we can defeat CAFTA in the House. The House vote is projected 
to be too
close to call, so your success in persuading your representative 
to vote NO
on CAFTA could be decisive in this battle to preserve American 
independence!

CAFTA Is
Bad for Your Health
The New American Online - July 11, 2005
Do you take vitamins and nutritional supplements? Do you want a

The Washington Post - July 6, 2005
The Central American Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA) is moving toward 
a House
vote and many Democrats are vowing to vote it down. The fact that 
Democrats
are shifting away from free trade agreements has become evident 
with the
recent Senate vote on CAFTA. Out of the 54 "yea" votes, only 10 
came from
the Democratic Party.
