In a video posted on Friday, four days ahead of President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address, Rangel said free education should be a part of the trade bill.
“Now that we’re talking about the Trans-Pacific Partnership and Transatlantic Investment trade bills now more than ever, we have to make certain that we have our people, and especially our young people, trained to accept these challenges,” Rangel said. “So it’s not just the two years in tuition, it should be part of the trade bill to build America up in technology so we’ll have the skills to meet the challenges.”
