US Trade Bill Mark Up

Senate meeting on TPP Agreement, Cspan 3, at 10:45 am (amended)

Watched the repeat of a lot of today's, and it's interesting. Trunka was on for the unions and he's full of criticisms, and a Mr. Donohue, forgot title, a business leader.

They all agree on one thing. A trade policy or agreement is needed. Tomorrows meeting will have a vote on whether the President can have the Fast-Track passed, so that he can make deals, and they'll examine whether they can have up and down votes on on bills without any amendments. After they vote, it'll go to the House...

It's hard to put this stuff into a couple of sentences. But try to watch tomorrow morning.

Oh, was thinking about "stuff," and the President's use of the word. It's become a high-class word, anybody notice that.?

"The Senate Finance Committee holds a markup on a number of pieces of legislation, including S. 995, a bill establishing rules for U.S. negotiators to follow when working on foreign trade deals, including the in-progress Trans-Pacific Partnership."

will correct it, thank you. Anyway, it's 10:45. Am anxious to watch it because of all the controversy. Thank goodness I don't have to decide because the more I hear the less I know.
