Democrats Rein In Obama on Overreach

Perhaps the imperative of checking Barack Obama’s overreach has hit a tipping point when nearly every Senate Democrat objected yesterday to giving him a blank check to negotiate trade deals.

Or perhaps they’re just extracting a higher price for enabling the further evisceration of their institution as a check-and-balance on the executive branch?

At issue is whether to reduce the Senate to a rubber-stamp on a Trans Pacific Partnership agreement and others now in the works. Yet, these senators were happy to give Obama a similar blank check last week on his lousy deal with Iran.

Here’s hoping Senate Democrats remain more adamant about doing quality control on defective trade agreements that could impoverish their constituents than they were on a dangerous nuclear accord that could get them killed.
