Not all of the Republicans agree with the House Speaker, or Mark Rubio. But I don’t understand their objections. We have relations with all sorts of countries, including China. And China doesn’t have a free press, or free elections, etc. either. And we also have relations with Saudi Arabia. The list goes on.
Besides, some groups which usually are aligned with the Republicans are in favor of the change. For example, the Chamber of Commerce, and US farmers.
It’s just a natural change in the course of history.
And it’s not like the last 50+ years have accomplished anything. These Republicans seem to be saying, let’s take a tried and true failure and continue it.
