Friends of the Earth Urges House to Reject TAA for a Second Time

WASHINGTON - On Friday the package of Fast Track trade bills was defeated in the U.S. House of Representatives because a component of the package -- a bill on Trade Adjustment Assistance -- was soundly defeated. The TAA bill would cut Medicare and Medicaid funding for dialysis treatment by hundreds of millions of dollars. This week, however, Speaker Boehner is expected to call a “do over” vote on the bill in an attempt to save Fast Track.
