Joe Biden Won’t Say If He Backs the Trade Deal He Helped Sell so under Obama it was okay to screw over USA workers like Trump does .........

Recommended Posts

Though TPP itself never came up for a vote on Capitol Hill, in 2015 a related bill called Trade Promotion Authority did. It allowed Congress to take a simple initial yes/no vote on approving trade deals, rather than having each section of an agreement subject to debate. In practice, voting for TPA was largely seen as a vote for TPP, because it was passed with the understanding that Obama would immediately use it to send his trade deal up for a final vote.

 

Neither Warren nor Sanders voted for TPA.

 

But several other 2020 hopefuls approved the measure—creating some noteworthy juxtapositions with their positions now.

 

Take Senator Michael Bennet of Colorado. His spokesperson noted that Bennet wanted TPP to better address “the very real economic pain that American families are feeling from globalization and the changing economy.” But “he also doesn’t think we should cede to China writing the rules for trade in the Asia-Pacific region, as President Trump has done.”

 

Or take former Representative Beto O’Rourke of Texas, who also voted for TPA. Asked where the candidate stands on TPP,

 

O’Rourke’s communications director, Chris Evans, went after Trump: “This president’s go-it-alone and shoot-from-the-hip trade policy is jeopardizing the very livelihood of American farmers and workers while imposing a tax hike on American consumers,” Evans said.

 

“As president, Beto would only support trade agreements that put American workers, farmers, and consumers at the center. He will also ensure that all U.S. trade agreements have strong worker and environmental protections with strong enforcement mechanisms

Joe Biden Is a Bad Bet

Far from being the safest choice, Biden lacks the economic vision necessary to counter Trump.

It's called comparative advantage, idiot. Maybe if you actually got an education in economics, you would't look so unbelievably stupid.

 

There IS such a thing as a stupid question.
