Today the millionaires in Congress passed not one, but THREE one-way-street trade agreements for wealthy Wall Street investors. They sold out the majority today. They couldn’t have been more clear if they shouted from the rooftops: F YOU AMERICA. That’s what the Republicans AND the Democrats in Congress did today with their trade agreements.
These one-way deals will make members of Congress richer and that is exactly why they passed these trade agreements and exactly why Obama sent George Bush’s Trade Agreement to them to sign. These trade Agreements will make Obama richer too. But as for the majority? Well, it will work out about as well as NAFTA has worked out for us multiplied by three.
To fully understand the criminal act against the majority today, and the fact that Congress and the Obama Administration knew what they were doing when pulling this heist, you need to know about H.R. 2832 -Trade Adjustment Assistance Extension Act of 2011. [source]
Apparently enough members of Congress were repulsed by what was about to be pulled off. So in order to ensure enough votes for the three hideously destructive trade agreements, the instigators in Congress floated a bill in early September: H.R. 2832 Trade Adjustment Assistance Extension Act of 2011.
You really need to read some of the amendments to see what they were doing: For example: #18 “To make the effective date of the amendments expanding the trade adjustment assistance program contingent on the enactment of the United States-Korea Free Trade Agreement Implementation Act, the United States-Columbia Trade Promotion Agreement Implementation Act, and the United States-Panama Trade Promotion Agreement Implementation Act. ”
#28 ”To limit eligibility for trade adjustment assistance to workers who are laid off because of an increase in imports from, or a shift in production to, a country with which the United States has a free trade agreement in effect.”
H.R. 2832 was introduced 9/2/2011 by Rep. Dave Camp from Michigan (like he ever gave a damn about the majority)
Tell me, Mr. President, if these one-way trade agreements are bringing so many jobs to the America workers, why was it necessary to create a bill that will make sure our workers have unemployment when they are laid off by these trade agreements?
Is this the best you can do, Mr. President for the majority? If you then you should step down now. Don’t even wait until Nov 2012 and you can take Congress with you. We don’ want handouts sir. We want jobs.
H.R. 2832 was created to extend unemployment to workers who would be laid off by these trade agreements.
So if these trade agreements are going to create so many jobs for Americans, why was this bill necessary? That is the question that we should be asking our “representatives.
What is the only solution? Kick all Democrats and Republican/Teaparty members out of the House of Representatives in 2012. Replace them with Independent, non Wall Street stock owning Americans from the majority.
Find out now what you need to do in your state to run as an Independent for U.S. Congress. Go for it!
ANY MEMBER OF THE MAJORITY WHO VOTES FOR EITHER A DEMOCRAT OR A REPUBLICAN IN 2012 IS A SELF-DESTRUCTIVE FOOL. Those from the majority who don’t realize that after today may not be educable.
