In my last post, I noted that there could be a very ugly side to Nancy Pelosi's move to delay a vote on the Colombia Free Trade Agreement. Well, it seems like that ugly side could be coming true. Here's CongressDaily:
House Democratic leaders are seriously considering delaying a vote on the Colombia Free Trade Agreement until after the November elections, thereby providing needed cover for vulnerable rank-and-file members, according to senior Democratic leadership sources.
CongressDaily says the lame-duck plan is gaining momentum, and that - despite polls showing the vast majority of Americans opposing this NAFTA-style trade policy - Democrats say killing the deal "is not seen as a viable political option."
