Let’s make a deal

Barney Frank was on Radio Boston today discussing the TPP.   As usual, he was very sharp.  He understands both the significance of the TPP and the value of making deals with the opposition party.  His suggestion:  Get some legislative concessions from Republicans now in exchange for supporting the TPP because you’re not going to get any concessions from them once the TPP passes.  Conditional support for the TPP is leverage.  Use it.
