They can only approve or disapprove, and, I believe, the time to look over the TPP will be limited to 90 days.
The House won't vote on TPA until after Memorial Day!
The Senate has only ended filibuster rule. Still have to vote up or down.
Since Republicans control the legislative process, and the Democrats aren't all that interested in stopping it, I think that Fast Track is more likely than not to pass.
then a vote and then on to the House where the real fight over the TPA will commence (harder to get it through the House), then more TPP negotiating, mostly with Japan, over some pretty big sticking points (auto parts, rice and a couple of other issues). Then, in 2-5 months, it's introduced and we have a chance to see it.
Or say they hadn't read all of it, or didn't understand. Or mix up the answers, depending upon who the audience is.
Just like the IWR vote(s). They truly are a bunch of slime balls. Almost all of them.
And the staunchest Obama supporters can breathe a sigh of relief because he bullied into submission everyone who didn't see eye to eye with him, thus saving face and guaranteeing an electricity-shitting Unicorn for all.
Course you'll have to trust him on the Unicorn part.
The Dems forced the Republicans into submission on what they wanted.
of export (or potential) export trade or senators who can get reelected no matter what.
I Know and more just how crappy he is! They don't like me very much, I call all the time.
Now they move to Senate debate and amendment. And up or down vote.
Then back to House.
I wonder if anything will change. I NEVER hold out HOPE anymore. Pretty much a foreign word for me.
Schumer, Feinstein voted AYE, several others who came out against right from the start. Cruz, Rubio, Bill Nlson voted AYE, Cruz showed up this time.
is who voted no.They are real dems in senate.
For me on economic policy being a dem and against free trade deals is litmus test.They hurt working people and kill unions.
The TPP has clauses that kill democracy.Corporations can now file claims to override US laws.
Sen. Michael Bennet (Colo.), Maria Cantwell (Wash.), Tom Carper (Del.), Chris Coons (Del.), Dianne Feinstein (Calif.), Heidi Heitkamp (N.D.), Tim Kaine (Va.), Claire McCaskill (Mo.), Patty Murray (Wash.), Bill Nelson (Fla.), Jeanne Shaheem (N.H.), Mark Warner (Va.) and Ron Wyden (Ore.).
I am done ever voting and supporting McCaskill here In Missouri again.
On twitter i told McCaskill i am very disappointed she voted to screw over american worker in favor of corporations and then unfollowed her on twitter.I also unfollowed both obama and reid on twitter.
I just think it's laughable the dems who always beg for money from people.They can just get it from corporations.They are only ones
they care about.
With Bernie sanders at least he is working against trade deals.And his campagin is funded by the people not corporations.
