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.

“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.
