Rep. Tom McClintock to Deliver the Weekly Republican Address
WASHINGTON, DC – House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) has selected Rep. Tom McClintock (R-CA) to deliver the Weekly Republican Address on Saturday, May 9, 2015. Rep. McClintock will discuss bipartisan legislation to hold Washington accountable for better trade agreements that mean more jobs, prosperity, and freedom for the American people.
“The Constitution gives Congress the authority to regulate commerce with other nations,” Congressman McClintock said. “Since the 1930s, Congress has chosen to exercise its responsibility by establishing the broad terms of trade agreements it seeks and then giving explicit instructions to our negotiators at the beginning of the process. That process is now called Trade Promotion Authority. It has stood the test of time and has been used to the great benefit of our nation. It is freedom that produces prosperity – the free exchange of goods between people and between nations for their mutual betterment. The greater the freedom, the greater the prosperity. Trade Promotion Authority is a means by which this freedom is advanced.”
Rep. McClintock is in his fourth term representing California’s Fourth Congressional District. Learn more about Rep. McClintock by visiting his official website, or by following him on Facebook and Twitter.
