In shift, Toomey says he'll oppose international trade deal

Source: Philadelphia Inquirer

Major labor unions opposing the deal also were not impressed. Pennsylvanians are too familiar with Toomey "to be fooled by this episode of pathetic pandering," said Richard Bloomingdale, president of the Pennsylvania AFL-CIO.

The TPP, awaiting ratification by Congress and officials in other countries, involves countries that account for roughly 40 percent of the global economy, including Japan, Mexico and Australia.

Toomey last year praised the potential deal and in May and June of 2015 voted in favor of so-called "fast-track authority" for President Obama, a measure seen as crucial to helping the administration seal the pact.

Shameless waffling. Last week he wrote he wasn't a 'rubber stamp'
for his party, even as he supports McConnell on Supreme Court stonewalling.

Now he doesn't stand for anything! Not even his own long held principles.

ANYTHING to get reelected.

2. Like to think so, though we don't need another lobbyist.

Maybe his pal Michael Bloomberg will give him a job.
