    This is less about TPP than TPA. And the bottom line about TPA is that a majority of senators do not trust Obama to negotiate treaties in the interests of the United States and are not willing to give him fast track authority.

      “Naturally, Congress doesn’t want to give up this particular power, and it doesn’t want to see the lobbyists pick up stakes on Capitol Hill and decamp to the White House.” makes more sense to me. Since when did Congress give a damn about what’s good for the USA?
