    We'll see. It will be a shame if it does not pass. It would be quite a plus for the country.

    He failed because at least on this, the party is keeping to its core principles of protecting the average American worker.

    Free trade creates more water.

    I like that dude. Remember the Amish amendment that would have stopped the NSA from blanket surveillance of American citizens that was killed by republicans. The activity that the amendment sought to derail was just ruled on as unconstitutional by the court! Yep, those constitutional loving republicans.

    Actually 35 years of Reaganomics has done that already.

    The US enjoyed an artificially lush economic environment in the post-WW2 world 1945-75. Thereafter stronger competition was to be expected and has been a sign of improved well being elsewhere. RWR's policies made us more competitive and enabled growth to continue in the tougher environment.

    This is going to get ugly for the Dems.

    Democrats vote to block Obama trade authority

    Mike DeBonis and Steven Mufson 7:45 PM ET
    Senate Democrats derailed one of the president’s major second-term priorities, voting to hold up a measure that would have given the administration authority to negotiate freely with other countries.


    Feud with Warren breaks open amid ‘fast track’ vote

    Paul Kane
    The Democratic senator has never been close with the president, but the public is now seeing open animosity.

    Rand Paul will have to go third-party to tap into this Amash coalition in 2020.
    And get himself a few billionaires.
    FOX will always be against Rand--as they are now full-court pressing for Rubio.

    I'm still waiting for our posters who ALWAYS post 100% GOP on the issues and politics to once again reclaim their GOP brand again .
