    Senators reach deal to move on with fast-track trade bill

    From Reuters:

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said the Senate would hold separate votes on a customs bill, which contains rules against currency manipulation, and another bill granting trade preferences, he said.

    McConnell also took steps to bring on a new procedural vote to clear the way for debate on a bill to grant the White House authority to negotiate trade deals and speed them through Congress.

    It appears possible that the impasse that led to yesterday's setback on fast-track legislation may have been resolved.

    Goddamnit. What this says to me is this: We will let you vote on these bills separately, then give Obama fast track authority. One of these bills is assistance and job training to workers who loose their jobs, what that tell me is essentially admitting that this bill is going to destroy jobs so we will give you a little bandaid after we just shot you in the foot instaead of treating the wound.
