Democrats Block Presidential Fast-Track Authority

Democrats in the Senate have blocked action to begin debate on a bill authorizing "fast-track" authority for the President regarding a proposed new trade pact with multiple Pacific nations.

The successful effort to block debate is a stunning and impressive victory for opponents of this latest in a long-time string of such trade pacts.  Labor groups and other left-wing groups involved in Democratic Party politics have pointed out the trade pact is aimed toward increasing benefits to corporations and other business interests at the expense of workers.

The winds of change are in the air.  No longer, it seems, can big money interests with the collusion of the President railroad through these odious trade deals.
