Yes, it's about time that good sense prevail in Congress. There are some great congress people who are really trying, but then there are obstructionists who play games and try to block everything from passing. Then there are those influenced by special interest groups. I say enough of the games, Congress -- do your job!
One of the biggest and now seemingly unavoidable problems with the American political system is the bipartisan split of our political engine. So many bad pieces of legislation and so many bad deals have simply been a part of accepted recoil due to petty squabbles between the parties. It seems if a democrat says one thing it's almost mandatory the republican say the opposite.
The Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal is a bad idea, and gives foreign countries a bigger advatage when it comes to trade with the United States. The long term effects of this plan are not as positive as they were made out to be, and it is a good thing that congress has come to it's sense.
There's very little "good sense" in Congress these days. Even if economists agree that TPP makes sense and would benefit our country, President Obama wants to get it passed, and that's an immediate signal to Republicans to just say no. It could be anything, even things that totally make sense or that we really need, if our President wants it, the GOP will say no.
