Job-killing plan opposed by unions puts Hillary in tough spot


NEW YORK – With the assistance of Republican leadership in Congress, the Obama administration took a major step toward systematically putting into place a two-ocean globalist plan that will dwarf all prior trade agreements, including NAFTA.

In so doing, the White House has created a new challenge to Hillary Clinton’s struggling presidential campaign.

In a deal reached Thursday afternoon, Senate Finance Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, got the reluctant support of ranking member Ron Wyden, D-Ore., to join House Ways and Means Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wis., in introducing to both houses of Congress “fast-track” legislation, formally known as Trade Promotion Authority, or TPA.

It would give President Obama what is known as “fast-track authority” to push through Congress the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a 12-nation, free-trade agreement involving the United States, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam, Brunei, Chile and Peru.

Under fast-track authority, there is no provision for Congress to modify the agreement by submitting amendments. Fast-track authority also treats the FTA as if it were trade legislation being negotiated by the executive branch, not as a treaty that would require a two-thirds vote from the Senate.
