Firestorm brewing over possible vote in 2016 lame duck.


With a vote on a controversial free trade deal looking increasingly unlikely before the 2016 presidential election, critics warn that congressional leaders may try to push it through after the election but before new leaders take office.

A vote on the Trans-Pacific Partnership in the so-called lame duck sessionwould free lawmakers who have been defeated or are retiring from having to face angry voters.

“I am sure the president would like nothing more than to hold the vote on his 5,554-page plan during the lame duck,” Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala, said in a prepared statement Friday. “But our job is not to help the president to bypass voters, or cement his legacy when no one is looking; our job is to uphold the will of voters and protect their jobs, wages and Constitution.

“Congress, under no circumstances, should vote on this sweeping international accord in a lame duck post-election session of Congress

1. I will not be supporting or voting for anyone who votes for this, who voted for Fast Track,

 

who votes the other "trade" agreements - or anyone who shilled/shills for them.

Bottom line. Set in stone.
