Boehner: Clinton Needs to Bring Democrats Along on Trade

Sunday, 03 May 2015 09:40 AM

House Speaker John Boehner says Hillary Rodham Clinton needs to back trade legislation that President Barack Obama wants — and help get Democrats on board.

Boehner says Republican votes alone aren't enough to give Obama the negotiating authority to complete an Asia-Pacific trade deal. He tells NBC's "Meet the Press" that Obama "needs her help" and Clinton should be more involved.

Boehner says Clinton "can't sit on the sidelines and let the president swing in the wind."

Presidential candidate Clinton so far is noncommittal about a trade deal she promoted as Obama's secretary of state. And she says any deal must produce U.S. jobs, raise wages and protect American security.

Liberals and labor unions worry that that the pact would cost American jobs and lower environmental standards.
