This week, Congress reached an agreement on USMCA, the much-needed trade deal between the United States, Mexico and Canada. While I support the recent deal, the American people need to know that Democrats removed a crucial provision that protected American ingenuity that will result in Americans paying more for specialty drugs – something Democrats consider a ‘win.’
I’m disappointed that Democrats were so hell-bent on altering the President’s trade deal that they gave a great win to Canada and Mexico at the expense of Americans’ wallets. However, I continue to support the USMCA. This deal is too important to jeopardize. It will have an overall positive impact on TX-02, where trade with Mexico and Canada accounts for more than 30,000 jobs and billions of dollars in exports each year.
