Thanks for the update. This was the expected outcome.

I asked Sen. Debbie Stabenow if she were going to vote to pass TPP during the post election lame duck session. In my opinion she leaves herself wiggle room. Below is the response from her office.

What do you think?

Dear Thomas,

Thank you for contacting me about the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement. I share your concerns about the impact this trade agreement could have on middle class families and jobs.

I have serious concerns that this agreement does not do enough to protect labor or environmental standards and does not protect American workers from other countries that manipulate their currency to compete unfairly against our country.

Over the last century, we have consistently proven that Michigan businesses and workers can successfully compete with anyone in the world when the playing field is level and the rules are enforced. Unfortunately, persistent, unfair trade practices like currency manipulation cost us jobs every day. Effectively addressing these problems would create American jobs, and it wouldn't cost a dime.

In the coming months, Congress will vote to approve or reject the deal. I will oppose this agreement if it will cost us American jobs or allow other countries to compete unfairly against our workers and our companies. Please know that as trade agreements are considered in the Senate, I will fight for fair trade that protects American workers and businesses and helps maintain a strong middle class. 

Thank you again for contacting me. Please continue to keep me informed about issues of concern to you and your family.

Debbie Stabenow
United States Senator

Their decision on Relocation was made with some serious thoughts and I'd personally have to agree with that. I'm delighted by the way it has gone down because they showed their individuality.
