SARASOTA (WWSB) - Sarasota area Congressman Vern Buchanan says he thinks the U.S. is long overdue in balancing trade with China.

“I’m a free trader but it has to be fair. I don’t think it’s close to being fair; I think we’ve been played. but as the Republican leader on trade now I want to make sure I fight for American jobs and American companies," the Longboat Key Republican said.

Buchanan is the lead Republican on the House Ways & Means Trade Subcommittee. He says exports and imports in Florida account for 2.3 million jobs.
