Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP): Stupid Party Cedes Working Class to Democrats—Setting Up Next Defeat


It’s not enough for the GOP Congressional Leadership to refuse to act on the issues that got them elected. They actually have to go out of its way to antagonize their constituents, as if to mock them for being stupid enough to believe the Republican campaign rhetoric.

Thus, the Republican Party didn’t just surrender on all efforts to stop President Barack Obama’s disastrous and unconstitutional Executive Amnesty on immigration. It has used the opportunity to support giving the President expedited powers to negotiate the proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership “free trade agreement,” in the form of the proposed Trade Promotion Authority [TPA]. A key vote is expected on Tuesday (Obama’s Pacific Trade Push Faces a Senate Vote This Week, by Julie Hirschfeld Davis and Jonathan Weisman, New York Times, May 10, 2015).

From a constitutional point of view, the proposed TPA powers are a nightmare. They allow the Executive Branch to create ever-shifting binding agreements with foreign powers that will not be subject to Congressional approval. Congress will only be able to vote agreements up or down, instead of being able to offer amendments.

  1. It's worse than that - read what GOA has to say about it, and read about "Fast Track"

  2. You know I find it simply amazing that educated , otherwise smart people still believe in the "two party" hoax. There is only one "political party" in the US and its members do as they are told by whatever group or person/persons who are actually in charge. The fact that "congressional comities " and "votes"; Like every other aspect of our government , is no more real than reality TV, seems to elude almost everyone. What this law will do is simple, and easy to understand. It will allow a king to rule openly in the FUSA for the first time since the 1780's and replace our laws with global dictate. When the only "candidates" one is allowed to "vote" for is a study in dynastic rule and even they openly do as they are told. Then at that point , one really must consider any belief in "republican government" to be deluded. ----Ray

    1. Like in Vietnam: They have elections where 99/98% :) of the people vote and of course a commie is elected since thy are the only ones to select from. Also, one person can vote for their whole family no matter how many are in it. :)
