Once again…

…our Democratic majorities make a difference that matters.
WASHINGTON - President Bush loses his power Saturday to seal "fast track" trade agreements without interference from Congress, where Democrats blame recent deals for sending U.S. jobs abroad.
Good for Congress. I was fine when they took fast track authority away from Clinton, too. No President should be signing off on international agreements of any kind without consulting Congress. Congressional authorization and oversight is essential to Constitutional government.

Notable quote from Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus...
"I have always said that it is more important to get trade promotion authority done right than to get it done fast."
Hat tip to Steve Soto.
