McConnell Angers Dems With USMCA Announcement

Democrats are not happy with the timeline on the passage of the USMCA after House Dems agreed to pass the legislation with President Trump.

According to Town Hall:

After House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Tuesday that she finally reached a deal with the White House over the United States—Mexico—Canada Trade Agreement, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he would wait until after the impeachment trail against President Trump is over before bringing the bill up for a vote.

“We will not be doing USMCA in the Senate between now and next week,” McConnell said at a news conference on Capitol Hill. “That will happen… right after the [impeachment] trial is finished in the Senate.”

Fox News reached out to McConnell’s office for comment and was told that the Majority Leader does not view his decision as a delay. His office referred Fox News to the rules under the Trade Promotion Authority (TPA), which state that the Senate can take up to 30 days to consider the House bill.

“The Senate Finance Committee must report the bill no later than 15 session days after the House passes the bill,” the Senate Republican Policy Committee website states. “If the Finance Committee fails to report the bill, it is automatically placed on the Senate calendar for a vote. The full Senate vote must take place within 15 session days after report or discharge to the floor.” (Fox News)

Democrats remain upset that after a year-long delay McConnell decided to delay the vote by days.

Democrats could have addressed this bill months ago but are doing so only now because polls show people are discussed with their phony impeachment, resistance policy. Palosi tried to take credit for the deal in which she had no input, to busy trying to redo the 2016 election results. So once again it’s blame republicans for what they did. BS!

Yes, people are thoroughly disgusted with the Democrats. I am surprised that their party has survived. They continue to act like children, and throw tantrums continually. Disgusting behavior.

Not recognizing the results of the 2016 elections, convicting the president for scrutinizing foreign aid in order to eradicate internal and external corruption, preventing the president in ensuring security on the southern border, transforming the cities of the country into sanctuary cities for illegals with social assistance, free health insurance, free education …. are violations of the Constitution and the laws of the country for which the democrats should be impeached.

Well, I recall watching a Video of Nancy, standing before other members, and bragging that THEY have been working on the USMCA…to their applause. In other words, she’s telling other dimms that it is THEY who have created the USMCA. Lots of investigation into that bill is absolutely necessary, to make absolutely certain that they have NOT added anything to it or subtracted anything, and having money going to other foreign nations, or to THEMSELVES in some round-a-bout way. I know it has to have been added. To satisfy those who are paying attention, ‘say you’re going over it before you sign it.’ I know how they F up everything they touch, putting in their OWN ideas and false promises. They should be Shunned.
