  4. Will Wilkin says:

    Maybe we need a new committee with a straightforward name and agenda: “Employment and Trade.

  5. Joe Brooks says:

    I live 10 miles from one of Boehner’s Ohio offices. I have dropped off relevant trade information several times, after speaking with someone there. They assured they would at least look at.
