This week I talk to Democratic U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin about her fight against House Republicans to pass laws making sure government money is spent on goods made in America. Baldwin has found an ally in President Donald Trump, who said he supports Baldwin’s bill. We go over exactly what “Buy American” laws are, and how they’ve been weakened to the point where critics assert that U.S. taxpayers are now effectively subsidizing the offshoring of American jobs. I also talked to Public Citizen’s Lori Wallach, who has been widely credited for leading the successful fight against the Trans-Pacific Partnership.
