We also know that free trade is good for jobs. It’s good for America’s farmers, manufacturers, and small businesses.

With self-described socialists like Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and radical liberals like Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) opposed to TPA – and considering that President Ronald Reagan and economist Milton Friedman were strong advocates for free trade – it’s no wonder that conservative support for passing Trade Promotion Authority is growing even stronger:

TPA will pave the way for new trade agreements, expand markets for Americans goods, and create new, good-paying jobs for working families.

As I’ve said before, trade is good for America. It supports good, high-paying, quality jobs in our country.

In a radio interview with Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade, Boehner made the case for TPA legislation that will pave the way for new trade agreements that mean more jobs and higher wages for American families.

The risk takers and entrepreneurs who sustain this industry don’t just put food on our tables, they support jobs and represent tens of billions of dollars in economic impact

The United States is currently negotiating new trade agreements with our allies in Europe and the Pacific Rim, and the key to moving these agreements forward is a bipartisan, bicameral initiative known at Trade Promotion Authority (TPA).

The House has just wrapped up another week of action on the people’s top priorities, passing bills to help fix the problems at the VA, fight human trafficking, and foster more pro-growth innovation.

America’s leadership in the world is driven by our ability to innovate, and strategic investments in research and development will help ensure we don’t forfeit that leadership to other countries, like China.

We need sustained, robust economic growth, and that’s why this week the House will pass real pro-growth policies to promote research, development, and innovation.
