Why are Republicans cooperating now?
If the Republican Congress votes to grant President Barack Obama “fast track” authority for the Trans Pacific Partnership legislation, it makes one wonder why Congress picked this issue for their first real cooperation with our president.
Could it be that billionaires will benefit without having to pay taxes while those who inevitably lose their jobs, because of the legislation, will have their retraining paid for by $700 million taken from Medicare?
This is a wet dream for conservative Republicans. Billionaires will make even more money, while continuing to pay little or no taxes, and Medicare, a program hated by Republicans, will pay for the devastation the legislation leaves in its wake.
