Are Tea Partiers Anti‐​trade?

Where will the new Tea‐​Party‐​backed members of Congress come down on trade issues, such as the newly revised trade agreement with South Korea or the next farm bill?

Those elected to the House are the biggest question marks because very few of them have had to think much about trade, never mind actually cast a vote on it. In an op‐​ed in the Philadelphia Inquirer this week, I try to discern what direction the new members will take the generally pro‐​trade Republican Party, and which direction they should take it in light of the movement’s free‐​market, limited‐​government principles.
