Posted on 06/23/2015 9:15:22 AM PDT by Beave Meister
The Senate on Tuesday voted to advance President Obamas trade agenda, approving a measure to end debate on fast-track authority.
The 60-37 motion sets up a vote on final passage on Wednesday. If the Senate approves fast-track or trade promotion authority (TPA), it would then be sent to Obamas desk to become law.
Fast-track authority would allow Obama to send trade deals to Congress for up-or-down votes. The White House wants the authority to conclude negotiations on a sweeping trans-Pacific trade deal. Thirteen Democrats backed fast-track in Tuesdays vote, handing Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) a major legislative victory. Sen. Ben Cardin (D-Md.) voted against the procedural motion.

Round up the usual suspects: who voted to support Our Lord And Savior, the Obama, the Messiah, The Won?
I see this stuff, pray and buy another box of ammo.
The other votes are probably just a formality, but other than that, yeah, we’re screwed.
Where is the list?
Treason. And the GOP bit#hed about details about Obamacare were unknown and voted on.
NWO inbound. I guess this confirms that Soros and O will burn in the fires of Hell then right?
Either the gestapo is putting something in the Capitol Hill coffee or 0dungo’s blackmail machine is in overdrive. Or both.
We can thank the GOP for this. Pi$$ on the traitorous wretches.
Welcome to the one world order. American Sovereignty is GONE!
This stinks because the bill that cloture passed had nothing to do with TPA but was originally a bill around changes to pension withdrawals for public safety authorities. House Leadership injected the TPA as an amendment to the bill. By the way Rubio delivered the 60th vote.
So y’all think going into a voting booth will save us from communism. ROTFLMAO! Just a waist of time & embellishes these scumbags.
Cruz, very likely.
“Where is the list?”
Cruz wrote an article for Breitbart News explaining why he would vote against the bill this time, using reasons that he was fully cognizant of when he voted FOR it the first time. Since he came out with the article just hours before the vote, McConnell must have informed him that since he had the required 60 votes, it would be okay for him to vote against it and be able to crow about it. It won’t fly.
What did the Rube get for his capitulation?
The Rube is in bed with the GOPe and Wall Street as much as the the Dauphin Bush. Him and Dauphin enjoy threesomes with the GOPe. Rube is Dauphin with better packaging.
Actually, no, I don't. It's painfully clear the ballot box no longer works.
We can thank the GOP for this.
Yes, and don’t forget to vote for them in 2016. They will stop Obama don’t you know. /sarc
Cruz is the only GOP pol getting my vote for 2016. The rest will be 3rd party. I'm done with the GOP. Only traitors and morons vote GOP.
