Brevard Tea Party & Brevard 9/12 Present The Coalition for a Prosperous America

Our trade agreements have the biggest effect on our prosperity. How will these agreements effect your future.

The Coalition for a Prosperous America is a non profit membership organization established in 2007 as a coalition among manufacturing, agriculture and labor to fix the U.S. trade deficit and the economy. CPA top issues include 1. the dangers of currency manipulation to the U.S. economy and the international monetary system; 2. the problem of foreign state-owned enterprises which distort domestic and international markets; 3. the need to establish a national strategy to produce more of what we consume and balance trade flows; and 4. the importance of Buy America provisions in federal infrastructure and other procurement rules. CPA educates business, organization and political leaders about the economic harm caused by the trade deficit, methods to correct the deficit, and the need to develop and implement a national strategy to produce more in the U.S.

Seventy percent of CPA's work centers on educating local business leaders, with a focus on cities and communities that have been harmed by foreign trade cheating. Thirty percent of our work includes education in Washington, DC.

They are about 9,000 to 10,000 and growing. Which is where we come in. The grass roots needs to learn about this issue ASAP, especially the TPP. See attachments.

The Trade Problem
America’s trade policies have caused grave harm to our country’s economy, security and people. Our trade deficit is over $1.5 billion per day. One in five manufacturing jobs have been lost in 10 years as tens of thousands of manufacturers have closed. Each energy intensive factory lost to another country produces up to eight times more global warming emissions than in the U.S. America’s traditionally large agricultural trade surplus has disappeared since NAFTA implementation. Food imports exceed exports and enter the country without food safety inspection. Trade agreements dangerously undermine America’s sovereignty by overriding the U.S. Constitution and local, state and federal laws.
We need international commerce that roughly balances imports and exports, without surrendering sovereignty, the environment or food safety. America can have trade that promotes its industrial and agricultural policy, produces jobs, increases incomes, and preserves our strength.
Our Mission
The Coalition for a Prosperous America (CPA) is working for a new and positive U.S. trade policy that delivers prosperity and security to America, its citizens, farms, factories and working people. We are an unrivaled coalition of manufacturing, agricultural, worker, consumer and citizen interests working together to re-build an America for ourselves, our children and our grand-children. We believe America can provide good jobs for workers, affordable goods for consumers, opportunity for farms and manufacturers and a clean environment without compromising our national sovereignty and security. We are committed to achieving this outcome.
The Coalition for a Prosperous America is a nonprofit organization representing the interests of 2.7 million households through our agricultural, manufacturing and labor members.
Our Activities
CPA’s focus is upon the grass roots. We are educating citizens and local opinion leaders where they live and work. We are identifying those elected members of Congress who favor improved trade policies and, as importantly, those who do not. We will hold major events during the electoral cycles to inform citizens on the issues. Engaging Washington is important, but politicians come home on the weekends, and must face the citizens. Engaging America is our primary focus.
