About This File

This week's file features the Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) DA. The TPA prevents Congress from adding amendments to previously negotiated trade deals and would make it easier for the president to finalize those deals. The file includes an econ/competitiveness impact as well as an Asia Pivot argument.


The file also includes a few cards for the Iran Sanctions DA as well as the Immigration DA, if that is your thing.


Finally, the file includes answers to all of the scenarios mentioned above as well as thumpers for any other scenario.


This week's file was authored by Chris Carey, a sophomore debater at the University of Kansas. As a college debater, Chris has participated in the outrounds of CEDA, UMKC, and several other tournaments.
