    Camp-Baucus Fast-Track Bill Bypasses Congressional Authority on Trade Agreements

    It looks like the traitorous globalist scum in office are again trying to send more jobs overseas.

    Camp-Baucus Fast-Track Bill Bypasses Congressional Authority on Trade Agreements | Center for Effective Government
    On Jan. 9, Sen. Max Baucus (D-MT), joined by Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) and Rep. Dave Camp (R-MI), introduced controversial fast-track legislation, entitled the “Bipartisan Congressional Trade Priorities Act of 2014.” Contrary to the bill’s title, the Camp-Baucus proposal is not widely supported by Republicans or Democrats in the House or Senate. The bill was introduced last week without a House Democratic co-sponsor, and Baucus – the president’s nominee for the ambassador to China – is the only Senate Democrat sponsoring the bill.
    Fast-track authority, also commonly referred to as trade promotion authority, grants the president unilateral authority to negotiate and sign a trade agreement and then write implementing legislation to be introduced in Congress under fast-track procedures that require both the House and Senate to hold a vote within 90 days. Although Congress must ultimately approve the implementing legislation by a simple majority vote, fast-track authority bars amendments to the bill in committee or on the floor and limits the amount of time for debate on the House and Senate floors to 20 hours, effectively limiting substantive discussion of the legislation’s content by Congress.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Just think about if all those jobs that went overseas were actually here and paying taxes all this time? I have no doubt that we would still have a pretty large debt, but is nowhere near the few trillion we have added to it as a result of no working tax payers coz they're all working in other countries? Economics works both ways..

    This is one of the things that seriously pissed me off about republicans.For years they bashed communists.They told us how communists were evil and how communist suck. They also claimed to be patriotic.But then for some reason they went to one of the largest communist countries in the world and said here want some American jobs.Which basically sent American jobs over to China, increased their revenue and thus increased their military capabilities.
