Paul Ryan: House will approve Obama's trade effort

Eric Bradner, CNN

Rep. Paul Ryan said Sunday the House has the votes to approve President Barack Obama's free trade initiative.The House Ways and Means Committee chairman is sponsoring a bill that would hand Obama "trade promotion authority" -- which would allow him to negotiate the 12-country Trans-Pacific Partnership and submit it to Congress for an up-or-down vote with no amendments. In an unusual alignment, Republicans are aligning with Obama on the issue, while members of his own party -- as well as some tea partiers -- oppose him.
