    Well thats fine. I think its pretty silly to believe the future of this legislation is a "unknown"... Republicans are pretty damn open about where they stand on the TPP.

    Then again other things do come up, and some plans don't get fast tracked. So it is silly to think.....that its not ever happened before.

    I never said its never happened before or other things wont come up. But I think the House of Representatives is going to pass this piece of legislation.

    Eventually, for the mean time. Boehner didn't see it as most urgent matter to be fast tracked, did he?

    because this bill fits Obama's ideology. it ships American wealth to other countries that he has deemed we stole it from.
    that is why it makes no sense to us.

    also unless it gets amended it puts American companies at the mercy of foreign courts along with the US government.

    he is extraditing US sovereignty to other nations.

    As much as I would love to see John Boehner kill this legislation, thats over a promise to possibly have a vote on an export-import bank.
    Slightly off topic, but related.

    I don't understand why some have such consternation about the Export / Import bank. Doesn't it support and / or reduce the risk and expense of US firms selling US manufactured goods for overseas sales? Doesn't that help the US works, workforce, and economy?

    From my understanding, there are other governments that have a long standing similar support for their industries selling abroad. Why would the US want to discontinue this leveling of the international playing field?

    Because if you take the Export / Import bank issue off the table, the passing of TPP Fast Track becomes questionable, doesn't it?
    Disinformation campaign? The Russian collusion meme pushed by the 'news' media, behaving as a political propaganda organ, hell bent to destroy a legitimately elected president to implement his agenda per the votes of the same electorate. Reference The Big Lie Reference Goebbels

    Well because
    1.)They are on break for a week
    2.)It has to first officially pass the Senate and if so with what amendments
    3.)Boehner said its going to the House Financial Services
    4.)Gonna have an open amendment process, need a strategy especially because Conservatives really dont want that export-import bank

    Must be why Boehner said what he did, huh?
