Unfuckinbelievable!

The republicans even complain about the TAA as a entitlement. They whine about the lazy and moochers, yet when they pass shitty trade deals that steal jobs and won't pay for retraining...

Every one of these fuckers needs to be voted out.

end of rant

Why Obama’s Trade Deal May Come Back From the Dead | Interview with Richard Wolff

This is a week old but is worth hearing the interview. I can't copy the video on here.
http://rdwolff.com/content/why-obama%E2%80%99s-trade-deal-may-come-back-dead-interview-richard-wolff

Doesn't seem anyone likes it except the politicians! Clinton sounds a little pandering to the working class and unions but that's all. She obviously is mincing words. And as far as putting a band-aid on lost jobs, just give us a break.

Provisions of the trade deal, TAA and fast track authority, are now law.

Our elected representatives and appointed corporatists have put the American worker on a fast track to unemployment and higher drug prices. Congratulations everybody!

Thanks for posting that video. I wonder when the deal will be posted, I want to skim through it.


I looked it hasn't been posted yet, and I don't think it will be for a while, but there is a new link at the Whitehouse. It included the video above, but it also included more information about both laws than Obama's speech did. https://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2015/06/29/trade-here-s-what-president-signed-law

Sorry Patty, I think you need primaried. This is what I found in my inbox on the 9th. In all good conscience, I don't know if I can continue to vote for her.

Thank you for writing to share your thoughts on trade legislation that Congress recently considered. The Senate recently debated the Bipartisan Congressional Trade Priorities and Accountability Act of 2015, more commonly known as TPA, and the Trade Preferences Extension Act of 2015, which includes a long-term extension of Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA). I appreciate hearing from you on this important issue.

As your United States Senator, one of my highest priorities is fighting for policies that create jobs and economic growth in Washington state. I believe the federal government should be working to grow the economy from the middle out, not the top down, which is why I have been fighting to raise the minimum wage, expand access to paid sick leave to all workers, and make sure women earn equal pay for equal work.

As you may know, Washington is the most trade dependent state in the nation. 40 percent of all jobs in Washington state are tied to international trade. I believe it is critical for our economy that trade agreements move us in the right direction when it comes to leveling the international playing field for our businesses, protecting our workers and the economy, and holding other countries accountable for environmental protections and fair labor standards.

I voted in favor of TPA to give President Obama the authority to negotiate trade agreements that are good for Washington state, create jobs, and help Washington state businesses sell their goods overseas. I also voted to help support workers who have been adversely impacted by trade-related transactions. Both TPA and TAA passed the Senate on June 24, 2015, and were signed into law on June 29, 2015. I also voted in support of a companion bill, the Trade Facilitation and Trade Enforcement Act of 2015, which includes customs and enforcement provisions that will allow the U.S. government to ensure that other countries are holding up their end of the bargain when it comes to international trade. I believe that it is important to work with our trading partners to ensure that they comply with internationally accepted norms with regard to labor, environment, human rights, and intellectual property standards.

The bills that passed through the Senate with bipartisan support lay out a framework for future trade agreements, including the Trans-Pacific Partnership, which is currently under negotiation. TPA simply empowers President Obama to fight for a good deal. It is now up to him and his negotiators to get that done, and then it will be up to Congress to determine if it is good enough.

The provisions of TPA will help the United States negotiate trade agreements that encourage innovation, protect the environment, and support economic growth. For the first time, trade agreements must be made public for 60 days prior to Presidential signature to ensure Americans have an opportunity to review the deal, and when trade agreements come back to Congress for review, I will evaluate them based on the impact they would have on jobs and economic growth in Washington state and across the country.

Again, thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with me.

Sincerely,

Patty Murray
United States Senator
