Sen. Sessions: Senate Should Slow Fast-Track Before It's Too Late

Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL)
Who knows what's in the Trans-Pacific Partnership proposed agreement? It's many pages of something mysterious and likely detrimental to American sovereignty. With fast track, it's like a blank check to President Obama to whatever he wants with little to no say-so from Congress. It's not like a normal treaty. Congress is voting on a bill that they're hardly allowed to see, let alone read. Shades of NancyPelosi's famous Obamacare statement: "We have to pass this bill so you can find out what's in it." Ninety-nine percent of those voting on it do not know what's in it.

I hope Sen. Jeff Sessions' op-ed at Breitbart Big Government is being read by a lot of people. Seems he's the one of the very few that has enough basic caution to be concerned about this potentially disastrous bit of legislation, if you can call it that. As he notes, it's a shell game, and, I would add, a hat trick. For the Congress to pass any legislation of so many pages and having never read, let alone understood it, we the people are being very poorly represented on very large-scale matters.

Bravo, Senator Sessions!
