It also could empower the President, in executive agreements with other countries, to admit more foreign workers into the United States—without ever coming to Congress for approval.”
The TPP or Trans-Pacific Partnership Treaty is being passed in secret, so secret, congress has to sign in to read it, can make no notes or take anything away, and sees only some of the agreement since much of it is redacted.
The American people can know NOTHING. These trade deals in the past have taken jobs from Americans and this one proves to be the most massive and most imposing with copyright restrictions, regulations, and outsourcing that are out of our control once TPP is signed.
In order to fast-track, Congress has to agree to dissemble their powers and turn them over to the president who will then negotiate in secret and return to congress insisting on an up-and-down vote. This is an Imperial president we are going to give this authority too.
Real Clear Politics
MARK LEVIN: I’m not into imperial presidents who act imperial and speak imperial and Obama forgets there’s a Constitution. Yes, he keeps telling us he won reelection. Congratulations, but guess what? The Constitution wasn’t up for election, it’s not up for a referendum. He has to comply with it, too.
He was sent back to Washington, but he’s got a strict list of rules that he has to follow as president. When he gets up there and starts saying, if Congress doesn’t do this, I’m going to do this unilaterally, it violates separation of power a lot of the times. And this is a man pushing the edge of the envelope as far as i’m concerned, whether it’s the appointment clause, whether it’s his unilateral action on immigration, whether it’s trashing the commerce clause and the tax clauses under Obamacare. Now they’re talking about executive orders on the Second Amendment. They’ve issued regulations on First Amendment attacking religious liberty. This notion that he might be able to lift the debt ceiling, you know, unilaterally under the Fourteenth Amendment.
What the hell is this? He was elected president. Congratulations. This guy makes Richard Nixon look like a man who followed the law all the time. I think we have an imperial president, he sounds imperial, he’s arrogant as hell and I’m furious about this and I’m going to tell you why. We are a magnificent country. We don’t need to be turned upside down. We don’t need to run from crisis to crisis to crisis. He’s bankrupting this country.
He said we’ve had a discussion about the debt. When did we have a discussion about the debt? We’ve had a debate about taxes. The man’s never around to have a discussion about anything. So, yes, he causes me to be furious when I watch and listen to him. (FOX News Channel’s America Live with Megyn Kelly, January 14, 2013)
