The trade agreement that has been hanging in the House has come to an end. For the better part of a year members of both major political parties have been working with delegates from Mexico and Canada to develop a more fair and updated trade agreement between all three countries. The USMCA is the agreement that has bipartisan support. But the problem is that the Democrats in the House have neglected their duties to bring it up for a vote. Their failure is motivated by their hatred for President Trump.
It finally seems that they slothfully have moved to work with the White House and wrote a version that will finally put the issue to rest. President Trump stated “I’m hearing very good things, including from unions and others that it’s looking good. I hope they put it up to a vote, and if they put it up to a vote, it’s going to pass. I’m hearing a lot of strides have been made over the last 24 hours, with unions and others.”
Nancy Pelosi was the one to blame for the delay. She was secretly hoping that the delay would hurt President Trump in the polls. But it has only worked to his advantage. Pushy Pelosi stated an echo of what the president had said “We’re close. We’re not quite finished yet. We’re within range.” Yes, she says that they are close, but they have finally finished. Pelosi had the USMCA version in her hands for some time now and done nothing with it.
Yet, no vote is scheduled to happen on the agreement. Each country is scratching their heads after waiting for Pelosi to act. But Pelosi was not willing to move any faster than a snail because she does not care. All she wants to see is President Trump impeached. She hates him with a passion. In some meetings, Pelosi has walked out because she could not even stand to be in the same room with the man.
The USMCA is just one of many things that the Democrats have failed to act quickly on. They have failed to publish a budget for the nation for the coming year. They have failed to develop a defense policy for the new year. The Democrats are a bunch of failures that have gridlocked the nation. Pelosi keeps spouting the familiar words “We’re trying to move everything along. We have a lot to do before we leave. And appropriations is the central thing.”
But Pelosi has not been moving things along. She has sat on her rear watching the impeachment process hoping that she did not have to do anything. But the facts remain that she wants to see the president fail. Pelosi was asked about giving the president a win on this issue she lied “Why wouldn’t we?” the truth is that they do not want to. They just want to appear that they are seeking to work with him. When deep in their hearts they want him to fail.
One issue is that Pelosi wants to see the party united and not fractured. May Democrats have been fractured when it comes to free trade. She is trying to play mother hen and working to protect her beloved party. She went on to say that “You don’t have to have unanimity, you just have to have consensus. Once we go down that path we’ll be OK.” She has only her selfish interests at heart. She does not care about the trade between the countries. She only cares about what her party can get out of the deal to make themselves look good.
President Trump maintains that Pelosi was the reason for the delay. Many people are furious that she waited so long to take any kind of action regarding the agreement. The nations were waiting and it would not have been surprising if they got tired of waiting and walked away from the deal because the circus Democrats are trying to play games with people.
