CPA Awards Over 250 Members of Congress ‘Certificate for American Trade Hero’ For Supporting Jobs and Growth by Opposing Fast Track

WASHINGTON (July 17, 2015) – Over 250 members of Congress were awarded the “Certificate for American Trade Hero,” last week by the Coalition for a Prosperous America (CPA) for voting against harmful trade initiatives that undermine America’s workers, farmers and manufacturing base.

“We are grateful to all who stood up in a very public way to fight for America’s future by voting against Trade Promotion Authority (Fast Track),” said CPA CEO Michael Stumo.  “Against steep odds, these courageous legislators refused to buckle under intense pressure, even from their own political parties, did the right thing for the nation they love and voted against Fast Track,” he said.

The new award was created to publicly recognize those who support American growth, jobs and sovereignty while refusing to bend to political pressure and vote for bad trade policies.  The Representatives and Senators receiving the award are below.

Stumo noted that despite the passage of TPA, there remains ample time and opportunity to rethink the country’s trade agenda as trade deals – including a harmful package with Pacific Rim nations – are negotiated and brought to Congress.

“These bills were kept under lock and key because their contents are radioactive,” said Stumo.  “And when the public catches wind of what’s inside they will fully understand why it was hidden from the public for months and why these deals truly threaten our nation’s future,” he said.

Stumo said CPA will be at the forefront of the fight for American prosperity and against these harmful trade deals.  CPA will be working to swell the ranks of “American Trade Heroes” on Capitol Hill.

CPA is a nonprofit organization representing the interests of 2.7 million households through our agricultural, manufacturing and labor members.
