Jason is strongly opposed to any trade policy that ships western Pennsylvania jobs overseas. Jason recognizes that both NAFTA and CAFTA have cost our region thousands of jobs. Therefore, he pledged to vote against any trade policy that contains inadequate protections for American workers and fails to address workers' rights in all nations that are party to the agreement. Due to these concerns, Jason voted against the Peru Free Trade Agreement and vowed that he will not support the current version of the Colombia Free Trade Agreement should it be brought to a vote.
Jason has also taken a strong stand against the illegal trade policies of competitors like China. While the U.S. has played by the rules of international trade agreements, our companies and workers are forced to compete against illegal Medicare, all at no additional cost to taxpayers. Jason will continue to work to make health care more affordable and accessible for everyone and to guarantee that patients' medical decisions remain in the hands of health care professionals, not insurance company bureaucrats.
