If you think "there's not a dime's worth of difference between the Democrat and Republican parties" . . .
I suggest you read "Harry Reid Threatens To Impoverish The World By At Least $600 Billion A Year".
IN HIS state-of-the-union address Barack Obama asked Congress to give him "fast-track" authority to negotiate trade deals. Shortly afterwards his most important ally on Capitol Hill hinted that he might block it. As Senate majority leader, Harry Reid can do just that: no bill gets a vote without his say-so. . . .
At home meanwhile, Democratic opposition could harden. Some lawmakers may see an opportunity to put daylight between themselves and their Republican foes ahead of November's elections. With corporate profits looking healthy and wages still stagnant almost five years into the recovery, some may be tempted to portray Republican backing for free trade as support for fat-cat corporations.
