The start of a new year brings new resolutions and an optimistic hope for a better year to come. 2017 certainly brought several changes and whether you believe we are headed in the right direction or have front row seats on the Titanic, there are some areas where Republicans would be wise to take note.  This is a great time for Republicans to exert leadership and ownership of solutions that can actually move our country forward and usher back an era of bipartisanship, decency, goodness, virtue and grace.

Throughout this election year, there has been a lot of misinformation disseminated about the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and its impact on the economy here in the United States. While some have claimed, erroneously, that it will ship jobs overseas and allow foreign companies to gain a competitive advantage, the fact is that it will bring benefits to many industries in Colorado – a fact which these opponents simply fail to recognize. If Congress is able to come together and pass the TPP, the result could be an agricultural and energy boom that could fuel Colorado’s economy to prosperity.

Do you care about the quality of your food and where it comes from? If you do, and you should, it is time to be concerned about the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement. The TPP, like other trade deals before it, is being sold as a boon to the American agricultural industry. But the real track record of these agreements tells a different story. In reality, the Pacific trade pact represents a major, ongoing threat to American food processing workers, family farmers, ranchers, fisherman and consumers. Nearly every trade deal since the North American Free Trade Agreement has promised to stimulate the U.S. agricultural industry. The unfortunate truth of these agreements is that they flood American grocery stores with cheap and low-standard foreign meat imports. Not only is this bad for our families, it puts U.S. farmers, ranchers and workers at a significant disadvantage as they struggle to compete with countries who pay workers mere pennies per hour.
