WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady (R-TX) released the following statement in support of the freedom to trade:
“One of America’s greatest economic freedoms is the freedom to trade – to buy, sell, and compete anywhere in the world with as little government interference as possible. It lies at the heart of free enterprise and I believe Republicans must expand that freedom.
“Done right and aggressively enforced, trade agreements turn one-way trade coming into America into two-way trade that levels the playing field for American workers around the world. They are also one of the best ways to turn trade deficits into trade surpluses.”
