The GOP is Selling You Out
For years, Marty and I have been telling y’all that the Republican Party is being run by Progressives. You want a little more conclusive proof? Just check out this post at Breitbart, which tells of Paul Ryan morphing into Nancy Pelosi. I’ve already written here about Paul Ryan being the GOP pusher of Fast-Track Trade Promotion Authority in the House. If I told you that TPA is now being referred to as “Obamatrade”, in the same sense that the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is called “Obamacare”; would y’all get the point? From Breitbart:
What Ryan is trying to convince House Republicans to do is vote for Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) which would fast-track at least three highly secretive trade deals—specifically the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP), the Trade in Services Agreement (TiSA), and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (T-TIP)—and potentially more deals.
Right now, TiSA and T-TIP text are completely secretive and unavailable for even members of Congress to read while TPP text is available for members to review—although they need to go to a secret room inside the Capitol where only members of Congress and certain staffers high-level security clearances, who can only go when members are present, can read the bill.
So, what did Ryan have to say about all the secrecy surrounding the trade deals? Again, from Breitbart:
“By the way, TPA—it’s declassified and made public once it’s agreed to,” Ryan said.
Does that sound familiar?
Another way to put it, is “If you like your job, you can keep your job.”
