We asked for legislation to neutralize foreign currency manipulation. They said no.
We asked for comprehensive tax reform to the double taxation of our exports through foreign border adjustable consumption taxes. They said no.
Instead, they file the Fast Track (so-called “Trade Promotion Authority”) bill to these global governance deals like the TransPacific Partnership (TPP) through Congress without any amendment or sufficient debate.
They admit they can’t pass TPP under regular procedural rules because it is so controversial… so they change the rules!
Over 170 members of Congress from both parties, last November, said they opposed Fast Track because it is constitutionally wrong and because it produces bad trade policy.
Tell Congress to oppose Fast Track and support debate under the Regular Order… the ordinary rules of debate and procedures given to every other bill before the House and Senate.
We cannot reform trade policy to grow our economy, create jobs, and protect our constitutional republic unless we stop Fast Track now.
If we get it wrong, the trade deficits will continue eroding the American dream.
We can win this. Tell Congress to oppose Fast Track to keep its power over trade treaties while protecting our sovereignty.
