Orrin Hatch on Trade Bill: 'I Don't Know Fully What's in TPP Myself' - Breitbart

And here you have it folks! A perfect example of why I am no longer a member of the party..

***** about Obunmers powers then give him full rein
***** about not reading ObamaCare then do the samething and throw American workers under the bus.

I'm at a complete loss for words over the stupidity coming from Washington.

I'm shocked. Like you, I ALWAYS assumed that Republicans would never be duplicitous.

WOW, did you even read the article? Obviously not...

Hatch did NOT vote for it BECAUSE he did not know what was in it...

Both parties have taken their duplicitous natures to new levels. Two sides of the same deceitful coin.

Rand Paul voted against it because he does know what's in it!

http://www.breitbart.com/big-governm...amid-collapse/

But, as
Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-SC) wrote; it’s not available for members very easily—and they need to sign a non-disclosure agreement before reading it. Also, any notes members take need to be left in the room—something McAlvanah didn’t include in his statement.

If the very people who pass the deal must not reveal what's in it, then something is very wrong with the bill, and our government for that matter.

Can you imagine, congress has to sign non-disclosure agreements because they do not want the public to know what they're voting on? What a bunch of absolute horse sh%t!

one bright spot:
Now firmly opposed to his powerful Kentucky colleague (McConnel) –and on the side of most voters nationwide, Republican and Democrat, according to polls even from the pro-secret-trade-deal Wall Street JournalPaul stands a chance at helping lead political outsiders’ rebellion against the permanent political class and Wall Street elites on trade.

The trade bill will be great, if you don't mind your food being raised in sub standard conditions after all it is about free trade.

It will also set us up for countless lawsuits from companies solely designed to make their millions from suing the US.

If the bill is so great, why keep it a secret?

It's a perfect storm.

Worst President ever combined with a crappy opposition.

And the majority of the Republicans voted for it without knowing whats in it.

Actually thats the thing, they can in fact go view it. They just cant reveal it, or take any notes....and its a huge bill.

Yet that is not what the title of the article says, is it?

from the article:

Ironically, Hatch also admits he doesn’t know what is in the TPP deal, while at the same time he objects to the push for more transparency prior to any crucial votes.
Thats mind boggling. Even with the ACA it was pretty clear what was n it fairly quickly long before the voting occurred.
