Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont., arrives for a Senate Finance Committee markup session of the Colombia, Panama, and South Korea free trade agreements on Capitol Hill on Tuesday, Oct. 11, 2011, in Washington. Acting in rare harmony, Congress is preparing to approve three free trade agreements that advocates say will boost exports, give the economy a needed shot in the arm and put Americans back to work. The trade agreements with South Korea, Colombia and Panama are being trumpeted as economic victories by President Barack Obama and most congressional Republicans. Democrats, traditionally wary of free trade, are more ambivalent, but all three are expected to pass easily when they come up in the House and Senate on Wednesday. (AP Photo/Evan Vucci)
