Thom Hartmann: Conversations w/Great Minds Lori Wallach - The Trans-Pacific Partnership Threat P2
Lori Wallach has been director of Public Citizen's Global Trade Watch division for nearly 20 years. She is an expert on the operations and outcomes of trade policies like NAFTA and the WTO - and currently is leading her organization's efforts to reveal the truth behind the Trans-Pacific Partnership. Lori has appeared on a variety of television networks - including CNN, the BBC and PBS - and she also the author of numerous articles and books - including her most recent book Whose Trade Organization? What is the Trans-Pacific Partnership - a so-called free-trade deal that the US is close to signing? What are the specifics of the deal - and just how much harm is it going to do to you and me?

2. I support Public Citizen and Lori Wallach on this and will speak to my Congressman personally
about this. I want to do some additional research and will check out the Public Citizen website.
DUers, please get this to the Greatest Page. The first part of the interview also.
It's complicated but this is one of the greatest problems we have. If you want to stop the corporate takeover of America, vote against Romney and campaign against this trade agreement (as well as all the other trade agreements that have only cost us jobs and money).
NAFTA is also a bar to local and national environmental efforts.
