Senate Approves USMCA

 

On Wednesday, Trump signed “phase one” of a China trade deal that increases agricultural exports to Beijing. Thursday, the US Senate passed the US-Mexico-Canada Agreement by an 89-10 vote.

The House sat on the USMCA for months, distracted as it was by Russia, Trump’s tweets, World War III, Ukraine, Net Neutrality killing the internet, recognizing Jerusalem which destroyed the middle east, Jussie Smollett, the wholesale slaughter of the Kurds (well, those not already dead from Net Neutrality),  and Greta Thunberg’s sailboat. Despite being controlled by Democrats, the trade bill passed the House 385-41. Now it awaits the President’s signature.

The USMCA will replace NAFTA, including stricter rules on labor and car parts and loosens Canadian dairy markets. Canada still needs to approve the agreement once Jussie Trudeau takes off his makeup.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer voted against the USMCA, claiming it doesn’t “address climate change,” which will kill those of us who survived the Great Net Neutrality  Massacre of 2018.

    But like if the Senate votes to confirm Trump’s impeachment, it’s canceled, right?

    Little known clause in the USMCA is that if either Mexico or Canada violate the treaty we drop the A and those countries become property of the USMC. Be careful Canucks, the Marines are coming…

    But the mouth-breathing Left told me USMCA stood for United States Mexico CAnada and the racist white countries only gave Mexico one letter.

    Maybe you were thinking about this famous scene:

    Hello, climate change!
