Here is what Rep. John Duncan (R-TN) posted on Facebook re. fast track. If we had more like him, we wouldn’t be in such a mess.
I have never voted for fast-track trade authority in the 26 years I have been in Congress and have voted against it under both Republican and Democratic Presidents. Fast-track limits the authority of Congress and gives too much power to the executive branch.
The U.S. hasn’t done a good job negotiating trade agreements. Too often, the deals that have emerged have been a boon for multinational companies but have not been favorable to U.S. workers.
