What's Wrong with America, Chapter 817: Sen. Richard Shelby

I don't like to personalize politics. But there's no avoiding it in this case. I'm on the other side of the Pacific for a while again, talking with various foreigners who have theories about "America's irreversible decline," the relentless shift of power to China, and so on. I don't agree, and I emphasize the tremendous resilience of the American system, the serious problems confronting China, and so on. But if I wanted to make a case that our system really has become pathologically trivializing and self-defeating -- and that our problems, theoretically correctable, may be beyond our powers to ...

Shelby Opposes Providing President Obama with "Fast-Track" Negotiating Authority
WASHINGTON, DC –Thursday, May 21, 2015 – U.S. Senator Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) today released the following statement following his vote against authorizing Trade Promotion Authority (TPA): “I have serious concerns with Congress ceding power to a President who has abused his authority numerous times in the past.  There are far too many unanswered questions about the impact of the pending trade deal on American jobs, and I fear that Alabama could lose a significant number of jobs if President Obama agrees to an unfair agreement.  Although I support the principle of free trade, I do not have confidence in this Administration’s ability to negotiate a trade deal that will ultimately be in the best interest of the American people or our economy.” ###
