Flashback: How the White House and Paul Ryan are making sure forced labor remains part of their secret TPP | 27 May 2015 | The House of Representatives will quickly get down to unfinished business once it returns from the holiday recess: defending trading partners that engage in slavery. The House, according to sources familiar with trade deal negotiations, plans to strip Senate language from fast-track legislation that would ban countries that are the worst human-trafficking and forced-labor offenders from being part of big trade deals like the Trans-Pacific Partnership. The provision will be removed by House Ways and Means Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Sociopath-Wis.) through a customs bill that will come to the floor after the fast-track bill, sources familiar with the planning told The Huffington Post…The anti-slavery provision was, for the White House and other backers of the deal, an unwelcome rider. While the provision seems like a no-brainer (Who supports slavery in 2015?), the White House wants it gone.
