    It's always about Obama ain't it? Even when it's not... it's still gotta be redirected back to Obama.

    Obama is why GOP House Leadership hasn't been able to have a vote yet.
    The "Freedom Caucus" of 50-70 some renegade TEAts doesn't want to give Obama anything.
    This would have passed long ago with a President Romney .

    Well, who's gonna negotiate and write the TPP with the other country's representative s?
    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

    I'm actually pissed with Obama about this. Yet in a thread about a particular policy going through I don't redirect every comment towards him in attempts to derail the thread. But I digress.

    But it was okay for McConnell to use the filibuster for the previous six years, right?

    Too bad you don't know it's the 50-70 GOP "Freedom Caucus" TEAts who are gumming up for the works for Boehner.
    Just as with the DHS in February--remember ?

From the Politico.com story, this will be a "vote to grant President Barack Obama fast-track authority to negotiate a massive Pacific Rim trade deal..."
    Will Congress be able to amend whatever Obama negotiates?

    So..... Does this mean the Senate should just pass laws, regardless the consequences, and regardless the understanding on them because its the "peoples business"?

    They do this, and I and my family are done with the GOP, especially establishment types.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.
