Sen Rob Portman voted YES moves the FAST TRACK bill one step closer to allowing President Obama to authorize ALL trade agreement treaties.

We are very disappointed in Sen Portman’s stand on this,  We view that Sen Portman gave up the very power that we elected him to uphold by giving negotiating authority to the President for several years — not just President Obama and not just for the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement.  When Sen Rob Portman voted YES on this bill he fails to perform THE Constitutional role of the Congress — to act as a Check and Balance on the Executive Branch.

Congress isn’t supposed to “trust the President” — it is supposed to check his/her work. This isn’t a failure to support your President, this is carrying out the job laid out in the Constitution for Congressmembers.

This is what Sen Portman voted for (from Rick Wells):

  • Sign away American sovereignty to international tribunals
  • Turn over control of U.S. immigration policy to foreign nations
  • Empower Hussein Obama with dictatorial authority over America in the name of “climate change”
  • Cripple America’s economy in the name of establishing corporate monopolies
  • Establish Corporate Fascism as the new form of government in the United States
  • Establish a Replacement Government, the Pacific Union
  • Potentially nullify the Second Amendment through mandated compliance with UN small arms treaty
  • Obligate American taxpayers to a secret “legal system,” of corporate extortion
  • Obligate Americans to conditions not yet known due to the secret nature of the Fascist empowering agreements.
