Cruz Admits He's Wrong on Trade Pact

Two cheers for Ted Cruz. The Texas senator did yesterday something all too rare in Washington. He corrected a mistake.

Sen. Cruz recently decided to give President Obama the authority to ram through the Congress basically any international accord he chooses to describe as a “trade agreement,” encouraging others to do the same.

But, the more the Republican presidential candidate learned about what Mr. Obama will do with this “fast-track” authority under the guise of a Trans Pacific Partnership agreement, the more Mr. Cruz decided he had erred.

Unfortunately, his own course correction didn’t stave off disaster as the Senate approved this authority by the thinnest of margins. Let’s pray more legislators will have the wisdom to reconsider — and oppose the TPP — when they are obliged to vote on it in coming weeks.
