I hadnt heard this yet but Nancy has a single brain cell left I think. https://www.politico.com/news/2019/11/14/nancy-pelosi-usmca-trade-deal-imminent-070909 House Speaker Nancy Pelosi indicated on Thursday that a deal between House lawmakers and the Trump administration on the USMCA could be announced within the coming days. “I do believe that if we can get this to the place it needs to be — which is imminent — that this can be a template for future trade agreements,” Pelosi told reporters during a weekly press briefing. “A good template.” 2020 ELECTIONS 'One of the hardest decisions of my life': Kamala Harris ends once-promising campaign CONGRESS 'I'm not going to take any sh--': Nadler girds for battle CONGRESS Nunes’ role exposed and 8 more takeaways from the Intel report LEGAL Lobbyist known for Trump ties charged with steering illegal contributions to Clinton 2020 ELECTIONS The spectacular collapse of Kamala Harris Both the Senate Finance and House Ways and Means Committees then plan to hold "mock mark-up" hearings — providing an opportunity for lawmakers to give feedback on the deal — before formal votes take place. Pelosi appeared to recognize the ticking clock, saying Thursday that lawmakers will need to see a copy of the implementing legislation "as soon as we come to a conclusion" with Lighthizer. She added that Democrats already "have an idea" of what the implementing bill will look like, which leaves the door open to the House potentially getting the agreement done this year. "That would be my goal," she said. If the House passes the deal, the legislation is expected to sail through the Republican-led Senate. Of House Democrats' four major concerns with the deal, the two areas that have proved the hardest to resolve are issues with labor provisions and enforcement of the overall deal. Pelosi underscored her focus on enforcement in particular but said the two sides “are moving positively.” But it remains to be seen whether labor unions like AFL-CIO will support the deal or opt to publicly oppose it. Democrats have long acknowledged that it's important that unions not be vocal opponents of the pact. People close to the negotiations have indicated that the goal is to ensure the unions at least say neutral. Asked whether he believed support for USMCA from the labor movement was in reach, Neal said: "I do and we need it." "I think we would all agree that right now the proposal we have in front of us is substantially better than NAFTA that’s 25 years old. Whether or not it's enough, we’ll have to figure that out," Neal said. Pelosi also struck an optimistic tone when asked how organized labor groups like the AFL-CIO might respond to the negotiated fixes. She noted simply how Democrats and labor have "shared values." “We’re in a good place,” she said.
