Rand Paul On Trade

""-- "Mr. Paul argued that the vast savings companies enjoy from such relationships turns to a real savings that “allows working class people to have savings to get a television set, to go on vacation, to buy gas for their truck,” adding “so trade is really a good thing."

Wow that's a tough one for me to argue against. He does have a point. The only counter argument I could make is... unless American labor is better paid few of us would be willing to support policies against foreign labor being exploited if it resulted in the lowering of our standard of living, selfish as that may seem.

So the question becomes.. would laborers in other countries be in fact worse off if we made our own goods here instead? If so, what would become of them?
