Republican leaders in the U.S. House have come up with a strategy to revive a bill giving President Obama far-reaching powers to negotiate massive trade deals after Congress halted the legislation but didn’t kill it.
Sources tell WND the plan essentially is to tell Democrats leaders it’s their problem and, if that doesn’t work, try to hammer out a compromise.
Indeed, the White House confirmed that House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, and President Obama spoke on the phone Monday to discuss how to pass the Trade Promotion Authority, or TPA, bill.
The first thing they reportedly did was agree it was pointless to schedule another vote on a key provision for Tuesday, given widespread opposition in the House. Now, the vote may not come for another six weeks, as the two try to figure out how to rally support.
