How about a headline that booms “Obama PLOTS trade path with McConnell”? McConnell, Ryan, Boehner and other RINOs who side with the half-white rogue fraud “president” on anything are fools. How comforting to know that McConnell describes as a “malfunction”, conservative members of Congress who voted on principle, along with the OATH they took upon their election and the fact that they did not want to sneak a piece of legislation past the people they were sent to Washington to represent without it being available to the public, or raise taxes on small businesses. No sir, Mr. McConnell, the only “malfunction” I know of is you, Boehner and the rest of you whores who’ve sold out to – well, who exactly knows who?? Harry Truman’s famous quote comes to mind: My choice early in life was either to be a piano-player in a whorehouse or a politician. And to tell the truth, there’s hardly any difference. Do the right thing by We The People who voted for serious change Mr. McConnell, or just pack up your desk, resign, and slink home in disgrace, since you are as big a liar as the thief in the White House. H.L.Mencken had you in mind also when he declared: All men are frauds. The only difference between them is that some admit it. I myself deny it.
Now more than ever we conservatives need to oust Boehner, McConnell, Ryan (all big disappointments) and the rest of the snake-oil salesmen who are in the rogue fraud “president’s” back pocket. (I’d love to know what “dirt” he’s got on all of them). It’s either that or get started on a third party because the GOP is acting more and more like a lost cause, and if they pass TPP the GOP will officially be history. It’s beyond shameful, the so called conservative party working against conservatives. True Rinoism at it’s best. Rachel Dolezal fakes being a black person. The Rino’s fake being conservatives.
On to the report from The Hill, yesterday, aptly titled “McConnell Plots Trade Path With Obama”…
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said Tuesday that he and Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) have consulted with President Obama on passing fast-track trade authority after it suffered a big setback last week.
McConnell believes the trade package passed by the Senate in May can still make it to Obama’s desk despite getting blown up in the House last week.
“The speaker and I have spoken with the president about the way forward on trade,” McConnell told reporters. “It’s still my hope that we can achieve what we’ve set out to achieve together, which is to get a six-year trade promotion authority bill in place that will advantage the next occupant of the White House as well as this one.”
The House on Friday narrowly passed fast-track authority but it defeated accompanying legislation to extend Trade Adjustment Assistance, a program aiding workers displaced by foreign competition. Both measures needed to be approved for the package to be sent to Obama.
The Senate passed fast-track and TAA in a single passage and it’s unclear whether the Senate would accept sending only trade promotion authority to the White House. The administration has also insisted the two issues should be paired.
“Obviously there was a malfunction over in the House on Friday that we all watched with great interest and we’re not giving up. We still think there may be a path forward to get an achievement here that we’d like to get,” McConnell said. (emphasis mine, just to get your attention on how this guy thinks – some “malfunction” Mr. McConnell, when the bill was defeated soundly)
The House on Tuesday passed an extension giving them until the end of July to figure out how to finish work on Obama’s trade agenda.
“We’ve not given up passing TPA. We think it’s an important accomplishment for the country,” McConnell said.
He emphasized the national security implications of using fast-track to pass a massive trade deal with 11 other countries known as the Trans Pacific Partnership later this Congress.
“We think it’s absolutely essential not only for our commercial advantage but also it has an important defense and foreign policy component to it as the countries on the Asian Pacific rim would like to have a greater relationship with us as a hedge against an increasingly expansive China,” he said.
But McConnell declined to reveal his precise plans.
“We’ll let you know the way forward,” he said.
Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) suggested that the onus was on Obama and Democrats to find the votes to get the trade package across the finish line.
“We happen to agree with him on the policy on this, and we’re working with the White House,” he said. “But ultimately the responsibility to produce the votes has to fall to the president and to the White House and to Democrats.” (again emphasis mine, Cornyn once again showing his true colors; say one thing to get re-elected, then act exactly opposite when you’ve nailed your next six years – pitiful, and he’s one of my Senators – for whom I did NOT vote last November)
House Republicans on Tuesday voted to give lawmakers until the end of July to figure out how to pass the trade package.
Say NO to TAA and TPP and keep pounding the offices of the traitors and let them know how you feel. This bill should NOT be allowed to ruin the future of our kids and grandkids….
