Paul Ryan’s Disgrace: You Can Read Obamatrade After We Pass Obamatrade
Once a popular conservative, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) has lately become the Congressional voice for Obamatrade.
Republicans want to fast-track the Obamatrade bill through the House on Friday.

Wednesday, during testimony Paul Ryan told his colleagues they will get a chance to read the unpopular bill once it has passed.
We’ve heard that before.
Chief Obamatrade proponent House Ways and Means Committee chairman Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) admitted during Congressional testimony on Wednesday evening that despite tons of claims from him and other Obamatrade supporters to the contrary, the process is highly secretive.
He also made a gaffe in his House Rules Committee testimony on par with former Speaker Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)’s push to pass Obamacare, in which she said infamously said: “we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.”
“It’s declassified and made public once it’s agreed to,” Ryan said of Obamatrade in Rules Committee testimony on Wednesday during questioning from Rep. Michael Burgess (R-TX).
What Ryan is trying to convince House Republicans to do is vote for Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) which would fast-track at least three highly secretive trade deals—specifically the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP), the Trade in Services Agreement (TiSA), and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (T-TIP)—and potentially more deals.
It truly is shocking to witness Republicans turn their backs like this on their constituents.
