Cudos to Huckabee for his stance on this and please tell me why "anti-establishment" Ted Cruz supports this trade deal, and especially supports giving Obama fast-track power.

Huckabee: Warns Against Senate Trade Vote Tuesday
by Alex Swoyer 22 Jun 2015

GOP presidential candidate and former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee is standing up for American workers, arguing that the Senate should not give President Obama fast-track authority under Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) for him finalize his trade negotiations.

The Senate is set to take up a vote on TPA Tuesday following the House’s passage last week.

“You have Republican leadership lining up with a president that they virtually haven’t lined up with on anything in six and a half years,” Huckabee said during a conference call with reporters.

And then you have an interesting mix of people on the left and the right that have lined up in opposition – that would include me – and Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) – one of the leading Senate critics has actually gone to the secret room and spent time reading the documents something a lot of the people pushing this have openly admitted they haven’t done.

Huckabee continued to express concern over the much-debated TAA program – Trade Adjustment Assistance – which held up the original passage of TPA in the House because Republicans and Democrats debated over how TAA will be funded. It finally passed without the TAA program.

“One of the sticky points seems to be whether or not that there will be a provision that there will be federal subsidies and federal assistance for people that are going to lose their job as a result of the trade agreement,” Huckabee said about TAA.

“I think there is an obvious question here – if this trade bill is going to create so many jobs and be so good for American workers, why are we setting aside billions of dollars to protect people that are going to lose all of these jobs that we’re supposed to create? I have not heard anyone address that,” Huckabee challenged.

He said he thinks the Senate is moving too fast on the TPA vote.

There is a deep populist current running under conservative America today. The average American worker, especially blue collar but including many white collar professions, has lost faith in either party as a friend. Organized labor is a spent force for the Dems and Republican promises that tax reductions for corporations and a free hand in international commerce would lift all boats has failed to deliver.

I would love to believe that the leadership of congress supports giving Obama greater power to negotiate because they think it will be best for all Americans. But I can't. I am not alone.

If Huckabee can tap this...?

In this article, Huck is quoted as saying that 74% of Republicans are against this tade deal:

No wonder Ted Cruz had to "convert" on the issue...
