Key Vote Alert – “NO” on TAA Reauthorization (HR 1314)

  |  

KEY VOTE ALERT

“NO” on TAA Reauthorization (HR 1314)

The Club for Growth urges all House members to vote “NO” on the bill that reauthorizes Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA).  A vote on this is expected today as part of the debate on the Trade Act of 2015 (HR 1314).  This vote will be included in the Club for Growth’s 2015 Congressional Scorecard.

TAA is a wasteful welfare program that even some supporters have recognized as ineffective.  It selectively rewards workers who lose their jobs due to trade (a determination that is itself subjective and tenuous) and discriminates against those who lose their job from market forces unrelated to trade.  This makes it a political special interest giveaway.  Worst of all, an analysis commissioned by the Labor Department found that the net benefit to society of TAA was a negative $53,802 per participant.  Any House member committed to rooting out waste in the federal government should vote “NO” on this proposal.

Our Congressional Scorecard for the 114th Congress provides a comprehensive rating of how well or how poorly each member of Congress supports pro-growth, free-market policies and will be distributed to our members and to the public.
