All you need to know about the Trade Promotion Authority legislation is that the President of the United States and the members of Congress are afraid to reveal the contents of this legislation to the general public. Another instance of the President of the United States lying about transparency and accountability in his administration.
|THE TEXT OF THE 800-PAGE LEGISLATION IS CONFIDENTIAL AND CAN ONLY BE ACCESSED BEHIND CLOSED DOORS BY MEMBERS OF CONGRESS WHO ARE PROHIBITED FROM TAKING NOTES.
SOMETHING IS SO WRONG, THAT THE TEXT CANNOT BE RELEASED UNTIL AFTER THE LEGISLATION IS PASSED
ANOTHER NANCY PELOSI MOMENT WHERE YOU NEED TO PASS THE LEGISLATION TO FIND OUT WHAT’S IN IT.
If free trade creates jobs and prosperity for America, what is the downside that is so terrible it must be kept secret from the American public and requires Members of Congress to respect the confidentiality of the agreement.
From what I have heard, the progressive socialist democrats, acting on behalf of their socialist trade unions believe that this agreement is a bad deal because it disadvantages the American worker who receives inflated union wages in competing in the world marketplace.
Whatever the reality, we are screwed by a Congress who refuses to stand-up to the president as if they are being individually blackmailed by some three-letter agency.
Bottom line …
Ostensibly the confidential Trade Promotion Authority legislation fast-tracks trade agreements and conveys certain unspecified powers to the President of the United States. In all likelihood it is another Executive Branch power grab that diminishes the role of Congress, in general, and the Senate’s role in approving treaties.
So why should the business of the American people be kept secret from the American people if the legislation does not include classified national defense information?
- Could it be that the President is attempting another power grab?
- Could it be that the GOP’s Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has sold out the Republicans to the progressive socialist democrats?
- Could it simply be that there are hidden provisions relating to borders, immigration, and the flow of people and goods over our sovereign borders?
- Or could it be that nobody wants this to happen and it is show-time in Washington?
We are so screwed.
