Philadelphia, PA (August 17, 2016) – U.S. Senate candidate Katie McGinty released the following statement after Senator Pat Toomey, a longtime proponent of bad trade deals, attempted to flip-flop his position on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal this morning.
“Pat Toomey has spent his entire career pushing bad trade deals and policies that ship Americans jobs overseas, so nobody is buying this ridiculous flip flop,” McGinty said. “Bad trade deals like the TPP have real impacts on Pennsylvania families, but for Pat Toomey, this is all a political game. He’s spent decades trading favors with corporations who push these bad trade deals at the expense of American workers, but now that his re-election is at risk, he’s willing to try and fool Pennsylvanians and claim he’s looking out for us. Sorry, Senator Toomey, but we’re not buying it.”
