Too bad we all can't form our own opinions. Quoting Robert Reich and posting his words as your opinion is not credible. Thumbs Down!

The media keep asking what Republicans have learned from the debacle they created, but the more interesting question is what the rest of us have learned. The answer is: We have to take back the House of Representatives in 2014, and keep Republicans the minority in the Senate. Some of you continue to believe there's no difference between the two parties, and I agree Democrats are too dependent on big money and therefore often too reluctant to support necessary reforms like single payer, major cuts in the military, a resurrected Glass-Steagall, limits on the size of the biggest Wall Street banks, a living wage, card-check for unionization, higher tax rates on the wealthy, and elimination of the ceiling on income subject to Social Security taxes. But I don't subscribe to the false equivalency between the two parties. The Republican Party has become the party of the powerful, privileged, prejudiced, and paranoid. They are incapable and undeserving of governing this great nation.- R. Reich

Don't know what to say.On one hand you allude to Republicans as being obstructionists and scold them for trying to nullify Obama's Presidency. On the other hand you "want" them to obstruct Obama's Presidency and have them stop this trade agreement. I guess the solution is to get behind Obama, fast track the legislation and kick back, put our feet up and see what happens! Pass it and see what's in it! It won't affect me either way, so I really don't care. While we are at it, lets give Obama another couple trillion dollars and leave all currently serving Congress in office for life. Who cares? Americans are getting a whiff of the stench of Obamacare and they don't like it but for Representatives of the people to try nullify it, they are called Obstructionists, terrorists, and teabaggers. What will happen to them if they try to stop this trade deal? What will be our opinion of them then? How about if we let the other-side do the dirty work. Tea-party should sit this one out.
