I knew that the House Democratic defeat of Trade Adjustment Assistance as a way to undermine fast track for the Trans Pacific Partnership would be short-lived. There was a lot of celebration but I remembered being burned too many times to be any more than cautiously optimistic. Even that was too much as the Senate has passed fast track. Basically the Democrats we thought would not pass fast track without TAA of course would do that very thing, the most predictable thing ever.
I guess we are going to have to just keep documenting the horrors of the global trade system and fight for one that is more fair. Keep fighting for another day. But this is very depressing to me.
