This last weekend the House Majority Leader said this on Meet The Press about the so-called Trans Pacific Partnership:
"We've got the majority here in the House and the Senate, but we can't do this by ourselves."
Since when did a party in total control of Congress not have the power to pass anything they want?
And the answer is, since someone tried to browbeat members of the House in particular into passing one of the most repulsive and deceptive measures ever, to abdicate all meaningful congressional authority over trade policy, and by top secret agreement to surrender the interests of the American people to the tender mercies of multi-national corporations.
This is one toxic hot potato. Drop it. And leave it dropped.
