    I'd be plumb pleased it he'd lobby against that piece of garbage.

    just like NAFTA she was for it & when passed "against" it :rolleyes: all they are doing is pandering to the unions they sold out to.

    I don't like anything with an ISDS in it as a rule of thumb. But that's not the only thing wrong with it. I hope it dies. Whoever sticks the knife in it will be my hero.

    If they "sold out" to the unions then we should see a stronger middle class within the first year alone... a relative once said of modern day unions that they are "a necessarily evil". I'm not sure they're really needed today, but there is plenty of corruption, so some union workers say... (or just ask the Disney workers from that issue earlier this year as a good example of why unions are not as passe as once hoped?)

    But that shows a strange correlation. Though causation is still up for grabs, and the parallel made between union participation and wages as such does ignore some other factors.
