WHAT IS THE TRANS-PACIFIC PARTNERSHIP (if you don't like to read a lot)??
IF YOU WANT TO READ SOMETHING ABOUT the TPP:
TPP FAST TRACK BILL HAS BEEN INTRODUCED! Although it appears to be
stalled, the negotiations are ongoing and we need to make sure our
representatives in Washington-DC know that we won't stand for the Secret
#TPP or any form of #FastTrack.
The Trans Pacific Partnership is our worst nightmare.. It will affect
everything from GMOs and labeling/bans, food safety, environmental
issues, public health, jobs, banking and finance, energy, the internet
and much more and will give nearly unlimited power to the big
corporations. Negotiated in secrecy by over 600 corporate advisers and
with no input by us or our congressional representatives, the TPP is the
proverbial nail in our economic coffin. It is surrendering our right as a nation to openly discuss and make national trade policy to a secret all-powerful negotiator who can strike a deal and force the US Senate to vote on the trade deal without having the power to see its details or terms first. A U.S. Senator cannot perform his or her duty to approve treaties or trade pacts without knowing the details of it, what it will cost us, what the losses to American job growth and wage structure will be.
