Our elected representatives have no actual roll in the trade policy and formulating it other than voting it up or down.
    Its what our congress does anymore. None of them want to be held accountable for their votes come election time therefore they always look for ways to abdicate their responsibilities. This for example and war powers as another example.

    Not knowing the full details of the legislation I'm not really for it nor against it (can't without an informed opinion on the matter).

    Regardless, at least the Senate is now doing the people's business rather than stuck in Reid's gridlock.
    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

    Its moving forward because its a right wing agenda that the president agrees with. Just like NAFTA zoomed through under Clinton. It will most likely have the same job draining effect NAFTA had as well.

    No, glad to see the Senate doing the people's business. Not sure if I support this particular bill or not.
    Why is reading my posts and understanding them so hard for you?

    I have to admit, I'm less than thrilled with the idea of Obama and his admin being out maneuvered and out negotiated once again in the international arena once again.
