Obamatrade Faces Defeat: Senate Votes to Block Trans-Pacific Partnership Bill


Senate Democrats on Tuesday filibustered a bill that would give President Obama fast-track authority on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal, aka ObamaTrade. Senate Republicans, however, are scrambling to rescue the pact.

One of the biggest critics of the TPP is Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who says President Barack Obama should reveal the text of the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement. It is apparent that her influence prevailed today in stopping debate on the TPP.

Truth In Media has reported previously about issues with TPP and how it could affect Americans.

Unfortunately, Republicans are in the minority of those opposing the dangers of giving Obama “fast-track” authority (see here, and here).

“‘Obamatrade’ is the name we’ve given to the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement, which is one of the so-called free trade agreements the Obama folks have been negotiating on their own, in secret, without consulting Congress for the past six years,” explained Curtis Ellis, who spoke with Truth In Media’s Joshua Cook.

“We call it ‘Obamatrade,’ because like ‘Obamacare,’ it’s a situation where Congress is going to have to pass it, to find out what’s in it. It’s so complicated. It’s so dense. And it’s so involved,” he explained.
