No More Job Killing Trade Agreements

They're at it again.  Unelected bureaucrats are meeting behind closed doors making decisions that could cost tens of thousands of good jobs.

It’s called the Trans-Pacific Partnership. We don’t know what’s in it, but we know who wrote it: Corporate lobbyists and representatives of countries that include repressive regimes with no concern for labor or environmental standards.

We should have learned our lesson by now. Bad trade agreements create a race to the bottom which benefits only the multinationals. Now they want fast-track rules on a secretly negotiated treaty. The corporate lobbyists don’t want the public to have the chance to see what’s in this deal.

As Sen. Elizabeth Warren said, ”they have to be secret because if the American people knew what was going on, they would be opposed.”
