“MEMBERS MADE THIS BED NOW THEY MUST LIE IN IT”
Americans for Limited Government Rick Manning today issued the following statement blasting U.S. Senate advancement of trade authority to President Barack Obama to negotiate the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP):
“The imminent passage of fast track trade authority ensures that the next year in Congress will be consumed with discussion of Obama’s trade deals. It is incumbent on every member in both the House and Senate who trusted Obama with this enormous grant of power to perform due diligence and to reject any agreement that is not in the best interests of the U.S.
“Congress has voted to make the next 18 months of the Obama administration about rewriting the rules of the world economy. Members made this bed and now they must lie in it. The unchangeable nature of a fast tracked agreement forces Congress to vote no should they find any provision which is an unacceptable usurpation of U.S. law. Congress ultimately bears the responsibility to ensure that Obama’s deals do not fundamentally transform America.
