Actually caring about things is soo crude

It's just not done.
To win the TAA vote, Obama and GOP leaders will have to depend on the political center. If enough Democrats and Republicans back it, it will pass.

Rep. Steve Israel (D-N.Y.), who handles the Democratic caucus’s messaging efforts, said that a majority of his party's leadership would support TAA.
Israel said that he’ll be “very grateful when the gavel comes down” and Democrats can move on from trade.
“We’re now in a situation where Democrats are screaming at Democrats, where labor groups are lobbying progressive members to vote against Trade Adjustment Assistance, where Democrats are being threatened with primaries. We need to get back to the debates that define us, instead of this issue that is dividing us,” Israel said.
Please stop bringing us the piddling concerns of your silly little constituents. Let us get back to calmly making ourselves and our friends wealthy.
