Protestors Flood Arizona Democrat’s Office As Trade Vote Approaches

Congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona’s 9th district is catching more heat this week from liberal activists who oppose the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP). The Arizona Republic reported that dozens of protestors crowded outside Sinema’s district office in Phoenix and demanded she vote against the trade deal.

Sinema has been conspicuously quiet about her position on the partnership. The Arizona Republic writes that:

“At a closed meeting with union leaders this month, Sinema refused to take a position on the agreement that would ease trade barriers between the U.S. and 11 Pacific Rim countries. She also said she was undecided on the accompanying ‘fast track’ legislation that would require Congress to vote up or down on the deal without making amendments. Union leaders said she had flipped from being opposed.”

Sinema should not be playing politics with such an important trade deal hanging in the balance. In light of the recent demonstration outside her office, it appears her constituents agree.
