Republicans claim enough votes to pass fast-track trade bill

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Top Republicans predicted on Sunday that both chambers of Congress would muster the votes to pass the “fast-track” authority sought by President Barack Obama to negotiate major trade deals, despite opposition from Obama’s fellow Democrats.

“Yes, we’ll pass it. We’ll pass it later this week,” Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell said in an interview with ABC.

Republican U.S. Representative Paul Ryan said on CNN’s “State of the Union” that he was confident the measure would also pass the House of Representatives.

    The gop has shown its true colors yet again, and they are as black as Ovomit’s heart. This act of treason must not be tolerated.

    I suppose we should go back to the old ways and tar and feather them and run them out of town. The word Politician is a curse word.

  • Dave Mather says:

    McConnell, you are an idiot and traitor to your party!! This is the only time the democrats have gotten it right and the GOP is being led by a bunch of ignorant self serving rhinos! I am extremely disappointed in the GOP and politics in general.

    There could be a plus here folks! All the millions of ILLEGALS crossing our borders looking for work will soon learn that all of our jobs have been shipped overseas thanks to a perverted trade deal by the Manure Spreader, Dummycrats, and RINO’s! Soooooo, maybe they will ILLEGALLY cross borders again chasing those lost jobs! Naaaaaaah, they will stay here until they destroy our Nation like they did their own Nations, draining us dry!

    Either both houses of congress are communist or there has been some serious threatening going on towards the elected representatives there for them to sell out America.

    Paul Ryan! Just one more liberal troll wearing the moniker of Re-puke Republican.
