‘Critical Alert’: Jeff Sessions Warns America Against Potentially Disastrous Obama Trade Deal

Jeff Sessions is sounding the alarm to his colleagues Senate-wide, warning them and the American public with a “critical alert” published Sunday evening that voting for the Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) deal that would set up the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal with Asian countries is fraught with problems and concerns. “Congress has the responsibility to ensure that any international trade agreement entered into by the United States must serve the national interest, not merely the interests of those crafting the proposal in secret,” Sessions’ team writes in a document that lays out the top five concerns with the Obama trade deal. “It must improve the quality of life, the earnings, and the per-capita wealth of everyday working Americans. The sustained long-term loss of middle class jobs and incomes should compel all lawmakers to apply added scrutiny to a ‘fast-track’ procedure wherein Congress would yield its legislative powers and allow the White House to implement one of largest global financial agreements in our history—comprising at least 12 nations and nearly 40 percent of the world’s GDP.

“The request for fast-track also comes at a time when the Administration has established a recurring pattern of sidestepping the law, the Congress, and the Constitution in order to repeal sovereign protections for U.S. workers in deference to favored financial and political allies.”

The Sessions document then goes point-by-point for five full pages through the TPA trade deal, laying out why it wouldn’t help Americans—rather, it would likely hurt American workers—and why the deal doesn’t in fact provide Congress with more power over trade despite talking points from the Obama trade deal’s proponents… it all here….‘Critical Alert’: Jeff Sessions Warns America

  • What a FAKE! This Senator voted for the corresponding bill.

  • He has a good point…why vote for something that you dont know whats in ..just like Obamacare.
    Scary stuff!

    • I’ve been against both of the bills. But Sessions voted for the first one….now he is against this one. (And I’ll tell you a secret about why…… Rep Dale Marsh of Alabama wants to go against all the politicians in the state and finally start a lottery to dig the State out of MASSIVE DEBT.

      This has brought Marsh a great deal of popularity with the public.

      Sessions cannot support the lottery because of political ties and backroom deals. His only attention getter is to finally stand with the public on the Trade deals.

      Otherwise, Sessions will have competition in any political area he enters from Marsh, whether he runs for Ala. Gov. or Prez…..and both are a possibility in future races.

  • How about one of you in congress or the senate call for the arrest of everyone involved with this coup of our Republic. I think you could get about 7 million Americans to fill the streets of DC to back you up.

    • Because……they are guilty of the same behaviors in their own STATES!
