GOP LAWMAKERS Sent “Obama Rubber Stamps” For Support of Unpopular Obamatrade (Video)
Republican lawmakers were sent “Obama rubber stamps” for their support of the unpopular Obamatrade bill.
Fight for the Future posted video of the rubber stamp delivery to GOP lawmakers.
An anti-Obamatrade group is having a bit of fun with some House Republicans’ apparent eagerness to give President Obama Congressional authority over U.S. trade policy.
The group, Fight for The Future, on Tuesday morning delivered letters to each of the 246 Republican House members. The missives pretended to come from President Obama, and request that each member rubber stamp the president’s highly secretive trade deal as the final vote nears.
The mock letters read:
Please rubberstamp my secret trade agenda. I have included a stamp for your convenience.
Sincerely, Barack Obama.
With the letters, they included rubber stamps that provide, alongside a photo of the president, the words: “I approve President Obama’s secret trade deal.”
The group took the letters to each GOP member’s office and shot video of many of the deliveries, mockingly saying to the front-desk staff in some that they were delivering a package from the White House.
The trade deal remains secret from Americans. But even many lawmakers, who’ve had the opportunity to review it, haven’t bothered to do so.
