• Rep. Lloyd Doggett gave one of the most impassioned speeches yesterday about the need for a new trade policy that does not continue the race to the bottom for workers and the environment. He is the only member of the Trade Subcommittee to consistently challenge the Administration to pursue that policy and live up to its largely abandoned campaign promises on reforming our trade policy. While questioning the Panama deal as deficient and offering no model for future trade agreements, he explained in a separate speech that because of Panama’s eagerness for that Agreement, he had been able to achieve another important objective—taking a major step to end Panama’s status as a major international tax haven. I also question the Panama agreement myself, but he made a good case that reflected our shared values. Green Warrior should be devoting every third and then some to overcoming Rick Perry’s effort to remove the best champion that Texas working families have in Congress
