TRADE VOTE: DFA says Sen Dem betrayal “will be remembered… and we will hold you accountable”
Moments ago the U.S. Senate voted to advance Fast Track for the job-killing Trans-Pacific Partnership.
Quick reaction from Democracy for America's Jim Dean to today's Senate Fast Track vote:
"Senate Democrats who just voted to proceed on Fast Track for the job-killing Trans-Pacific Partnership openly betrayed the grassroots Democratic activists who helped elect them and have been exceedingly clear in their opposition to any legislation that allows more NAFTA-style trade deals to be jammed through Congress.
"The Senate Democrats who allowed Fast Track should know that this vote will be remembered, it will not be erased, and we will hold you accountable.
"Accountability could mean primaries now or in the future, taking no action in your next difficult election, or support for progressive alternatives in future Senate leadership elections. Make no mistake, the memory of this clear betrayal of working families will follow you for years to come." -- Jim Dean, Chair, Democracy for America
