Sen. Roberts Tells Trump Administration to Forget About COOL

Sen. Roberts Tells Trump Administration to Forget About COOL

3/22/2017 5:59:00 AM/Categories: General News, Today's Top 5, People in Ag, National News, International , Ag Issues


Meatingplace.com reports:  

 

While the Trump administration prepares to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), U.S. Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.), chairman of the Senate Agriculture Committee, is warning against any reconsideration of country-of-origin labeling (COOL).


COOL is reportedly among the administration’s “key elements of a model trade agreement” that it aims to address in renegotiating NAFTA and other trade deals. But in a committee hearing last week Roberts told Robert Lighthizer, Trump’s nominee for U.S. Trade Representative ambassador, to scrap that idea. 

 

“We’ve been down this road before,” Roberts said. “We fixed the issue of COOL in 2015. We don’t need to go down that road again. We narrowly escaped about $4 billion … in retaliatory tariffs against the United States. I do not think we need a constantly changing list of key elements of a model trade agreement … what we need is a U.S. Trade Representative confirmed … and in place who will embark on a robust trade policy.”

We need COOL. The US producers have been demanding COOL for years, and our government has been failing us continually.

I would like the e-mail address of Sen. Roberts from Kansas. I have a few choice words for him regarding his words on COOL. What really surprises me more than anything is his attitude about it. He is from a cattle raising state. Can you help me out on this?

The Arkansas senators have said the same thing about cool and they are ok with sacrificing the American cattlemen

Mr Roberts is wrong about COOL just like he was in 2015. I contacted him then and he never answered. And then he wants my vote when election time gets close. He is nothing but part of the swamp. Any beef from another country needs to be labeled where it is from. I don't want to buy anything from Mexico because of their lack of sanitation practices.

Dear Kansas cattleman & women, I hope you people take a serious look at voting out Senator Pat Roberts. IMO he is one of the cattlemans worst enemy!

If all the ranchers want COOL back you need to sign up and be a member of R-Calf. Just attended the annual meeting in Rapid City and they are growing considerably. Tomi Lahran was there to speak as well as HBO. You're going to be hearing a lot more about COOL. Go join and urge other ranchers and farmers to join. They are for the little guys and against the crooked NCBA.
