American Jobs Alliance President Dennis Black released this statement on President-elect Donald Trump’s selection of Steve Mnuchin to serve as Treasury Secretary and Wilbur Ross to serve as Commerce Secretary:
The White House put Congress on official notice that it will be sending lawmakers a bill to implement President Barack Obama's Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement later this year.
The White House submitted what's known as a Statement of Administrative Action giving Congress a 30-day notification that the administration plans to present legislation implementing the TPP.
The greatest jailbreak the world has ever witnessed.
That’s what the people of Great Britain executed by voting to leave the European Union, Brexit as the London tabloids tag it.
Some twenty years ago, the people of Eastern Europe sent the Soviet Union packing.
Trump Declares America First, Obama reveals true nature of his Trans-Pacific Partnership
In his foreign policy address, Donald Trump warned against following the “false song of globalism.” This was a sharply different note and counterpoint to President Obama’s “No Walls” European tour.
President Obama sold Obamacare by telling us “If you like your insurance, you can keep your insurance.”
Now he is selling Obamtrade, the Trans-Pacific Partnership, by telling us “If we don’t write the rules for the global economy, China will.”
The U.S. Congress would be cut out of decisions impacting our economy and laws under the terms of the TransPacific Partnership agreement President Obama has negotiated and intends to sign.
After five years of back-room negotiations and an all-night session of horse-trading, Obama’s negotiators decided which industries to sacrifice and which ones to reward with the TransPacific Partnership. The bailed-out bankers and health insurance companies made out well. The American people and small businesses were not at the table. And if you're not at the table, you're on the menu.
By just one vote, Congress approved giving President Obama fast track power to negotiate the TransPacific Partnership. That sets the stage for the next battle: the fight to defeat the TransPacific Partnership.As John Paul Jones said as he stood on the burning deck of the Bonhomme Richard, "I have not yet begun to fight." He went on to victory.
Rep. Dave Brat (R-VA) says his opposition to thefast track power GOP leaders want to grant the president stems from his distrust of Obama and of GOP leaders in the Senate.
Sen. Jeff Sessions is sounding the alarm. He’s warning his Senate colleagues and the American public that voting for fast track Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) would pave the way for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), aka Obamatrade, a so-called “free trade” deal that’s fraught with problems and concerns.
