Congress "No Longer Necessary" If Job-Killing TPP Passes

Print Friendly

On January 9, 2014, Congress introduced a bill to fast track the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a trade agreement of 12 countries being negotiated in secret between 600 US corporations and the US Trade Rep. The public, the press and most members of Congress have not seen the text of this agreement. That day 40 people protested in front of LA area Congressman Xavier Becerra’s office because he did not sign letter pledging to vote against fast track. As a result, the TPP Movers were there to outsource his office to Vietnam.

    I hope that Congress does not pass the fast track of TPP. Shame on Obama for wanting this pact to come into existence.

    One more thing Obamma should feel shame for. but, these people are not self-aware; shame is impossible.

    So we could attribute the people’s uprising to
    conditions on the ground in defending the commons, “Life, Liberty and the
    pursuit of Happiness” a well-known phrase in the United States Declaration
    of Independence. The phrase speaks of the various “unalienable
    rights” which the Declaration says all human beings have been given by
    their Creator. The People institute governments for their representation and
    defense of these “unalienable rights”, protection of the commons and
    a say in these matters.
