Huckabee blasts Senate TPA deal before vote today

Mike Huckabee -- Prezography 2From Press Release


Republican presidential candidate and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee made the following statement in advance of the Senate’s vote on Trade Promotion Authority this morning.
“The U.S. Senate has a historic opportunity to fight for America’s workers when ObamaTrade comes to the floor for a vote today.  China has done enough cheating, and America’s workers can’t afford an ObamaTrade agreement that lets Asia outfox President Obama even more. Obama can’t be trusted to negotiate a deal on a secondhand surfboard or a flea market fishing pole–let alone a multi-trillion dollar trade deal with Asia that could devastate communities and destroy jobs.
“If ObamaTrade is so good for American workers, why did Congress add a multi-billion dollar ‘displacement and retraining’ program in the bill to help everyone who will lose their job when it passes?  With so many unanswered questions, it’s irresponsible for Congress to blindly hand-over the keys on trade to this Administration.  From Delaware to Des Moines, California to the Carolinas, a huge majority of Americans are speaking out against this bill and Washington better be listening.”
