May 29, 2015, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement responding to a House Republican aide who told Politico, “The more time it hangs out there, the more third parties on the right will dig in and wavering members will go the wrong way” on fast track:
“It is clear that House leadership recognizes the growing unpopularity of fast tracking the Trans-Pacific Partnership. Ignoring the implications of trusting Obama to negotiate a treaty that in the President’s own words, ‘writes this century’s rules for the world’s economy’ is both dangerous and irresponsible. We urge members to listen to their constituents and make it clear to leadership that no vote is better than a bad vote on a treaty that will permanently harm America.”
