CAFTA Passes Senate
In a victory for free trade, CAFTA has passed the Senate. The vote was 54-45 and was only able to pass because 10 Democrats and 1 Independent voted in favor of the agreement. It's nice to see so many Democrats stick to principle and vote for this important agreement instead of using it as an opportunity to deal Bush a defeat. Hopefully this will spur free trade Democrats in the House to also vote for CAFTA and ensure its passage.
