U.S. Senator Ben Sasse, an outspoken advocate for trade and agriculture, issued the following statement regarding House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's nonsense claim that there isn't "enough time to finish" the USMCA trade agreement in 2019. 

"Nancy Pelosi is holding Nebraska farmers and ranchers hostage and House Democrats are wasting time on circuses instead of doing real work for the American people. Last week Speaker Pelosi said a vote on the USMCA trade deal was 'imminent,' but today she's saying that there's not enough time to do it this year. That's some pure, grade-a bunk. The USMCA will pass tomorrow if Speaker Pelosi calls the vote and she knows it. Let's get this done."
