Debate moderator Carole Simpson introduces debate forum, comprised of 209 undecided voters. Unidentified white man asks H. Ross Perot what he'll do to open foreign markets to fair competition from U.S. business, and vice versa in order to create new jobs at home; Reform Party candidate H. ROSS PEROT says, "That's right at the top of my agenda. We've shipped millions of jobs overseas-- we've a strange situation b/c we have a process in Washington where after you've served for a while, you cash in, become a foreign lobbyist, make $30,000 a month, then take a leave to work on Presidential campaigns, then go back out... We have got to stop sending jobs overseas... If you're a businessman... and you don't care about anything but making money, there will be a giant sucking sound going south..." H. Ross Perot doesn't seem too fond of the proposed NAFTA agreement, but also doesn't seem to understand it either.
