Rand Paul Demands White House Release Trade Deal Text Immediately
Senator Rand Paul said Saturday it “boggles the mind” that the Obama administration has not released the text of the trade deal it’s pushing, known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) or as some are calling it, Obamatrade.
“It kind of boggles the mind,” Paul said in an interview with Breitbart News. “Who’s in charge of the administration that decides to keep a trade treaty secret? To keep it classified makes no sense at all.”
Paul said the administration should immediately release the text of the trade deal so members of the Senate can decide how to vote.
“To me, it’s kind of you put the cart before the horse to give the permission to do something you haven’t seen,” Paul said. “They claim you’ll get to see it, again but you’ll only get an up-or-down vote with no amendments.
Senator Paul also criticized Senator Marco Rubio for backing Obamatrade without reading the text of the bill. According to leaked documents, the details of Obamatrade are to remain secret for five years after TISA is finalized and brought into force. That along with privacy concerns over what amounts to global access to American’s data have many questioning why Rubio an other self-proclaimed conservatives would give Obamatrade backing.
