House Rejects Trade Promotion Authority

Disappointing. From the New York Times:

In a remarkable rejection of a president they have resolutely backed, House Democrats voted to kill assistance to workers displaced by global trade, a program their party created and has stood by for four decades. By doing so, they brought down legislation granting the president trade promotion authority — the power to negotiate trade deals that cannot be amended or filibustered by Congress — before it could even come to a final vote.

Here’s what we wrote yesterday about the TPA.

According to the NYT.

Republican leaders now have two legislative days, beginning Monday night, to bring back the trade adjustment legislation for another vote.

The question is: What changes between now and then?
