My fears with the TAA (and therefore TPA) down vote [View all]

First, I'm against the TPP and am therefore glad the TAA didn't pass, as it is 1 of 3 packaged bills that all had to be passed in order for this trade deal to pass as a whole.

From what I read, it is scheduled to come up for a vote again early next week, and my fear is that I have seen spineless dems do this crap before... "vote against it before they vote for it". IE, trying to play both sides of the fence. They got their 'NO' votes recorded, now they can vote 'YES' the second time, and come next election they can cherry pick which vote they choose to emphasize.

I know I'm jumping ahead of myself on this, but its happened quite famously before and I'm worried about history repeating itself... lets get some god damn spines and shut this thing down for good!
