Erik Paulsen: Boost Trade to Europe with Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP)

The congressman from Minnesota's Third District also had a hand in three art competitions.

U.S. Rep. Erik Paulsen (R-MN) wrote in a Politico op-ed posted Sunday that the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) economic treaty with Europe 'is a golden opportunity for America.' Paulsen and his co-author, U.S. Rep. Richard Neal (D-MA) wrote: 

A comprehensive trade and investment partnership with the EU is good for American job creators and workers and should be welcomed in Congress as one opportunity we can all embrace.

Art, Art, Art
Visual art was on Paulsen's agenda three ways in the last week:

School Visit
Paulsen visited Osseo Senior High School on April 29, 2013. Principal Dr. Robert Perdaems said:

“Erik Paulsen’s visit was also a great day for the school. He came as a learner, interested in the programs we offer that connect to the STEM initiative. He visited multiple classrooms, spoke directly with students about their work, observed that work in progress, and came away, I believe, impressed with programs at OSH.”

What a difference! Representative Paulsen is in the forefront of actively promoting trade to make the USA more secure and prosperous. Meantime, Keith Ellison spends his time making it easier for foreign terrorists to bring harm to our country, with his absurd "No profiling" stance. One, Rep. Paulsen, makes one proud to be an American. One, Keith Ellison, is a national embarrassment.

The "news" about Erik Paulsen is that he wrote an op-ed, he congratulated a third grader, he awarded an art prize, he invited submissions of photos and he visited a high school. I have asked him many times and in many ways to show some leadership on difficult issues and to even simply state his position on those issues. He refuses to do so. He takes the path of least resistance. He isn't doing his job.
