Rep. Mack: Obama Caves to Unions on Trade

Many Republicans are upset with the slow pace of movement for trade pacts with South Korea, Colombia and Panama. And California GOP Rep. Mary Bono Mack, chairwoman of the House Energy and Commerce Trade subcommittee, accuses the Obama administration of leaving the deals to "languish in limbo" in an effort to please organized labor, The Hill reports.

"America's trade policies are stuck in the fax age," she said at the panel’s hearing Wednesday. The White House should send the three agreements to Congress "immediately."

Mack opposes the Obama administration’s desire to pass the South Korea accord first, before the two others. "It’s disingenuous for the administration to say: 'Let’s work together to create new jobs, but not if it means passing all three trade agreements together,'” she said.
