Warren, Sanders, Brown, and the rest are DEAD WRONG

The TPP is being kept secret precisely because it will bring such incredible wealth to the 99%, but only if passed. But what if it doesn't pass, for instance if the Republicans block it like they surely will? We all know that 99%ers tend to spend money they don't have (which is what caused the 2008 crash, of course) and if they see the big bucks that might be coming their way from the TPP, they'll buy new yachts and stuff on credit, and then if it doesn't pass... well, you see my point.

The huge bucks are coming, people, but we need to pass the thing first. Let's just hope that our President can peel off enough Republicans to help out.

Regards,

TWM

1. And the US Chamber of Commerce, Paul Ryan, Orin Hatch, John Boehner are all correct!

Yee Haw! Gotta love those allies!

When was the last time the Chamber of Commerce looked out for American workers over corporations?

Thank you TWM!

2. neverforget that so called tea partier Rand Paul is part of the gang

and is also not only for the TPP but for fast track. The scummy little twit is ruining what is left of his daddy's legacy, and daddy either can't figure it out or doesn't care.

Rand Paul to Obama: "Prioritize" Passage of Trans-Pacific Partnership

Politics, the saying goes, makes strange bedfellows. In presidential politics, the cozy compromises with the unconstitutional seem even more unsettling.

Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.), a man whose personal popularity and political fortunes have increased in direct proportion to his spreading of his libertarian-leaning ideals, has now publicly embraced the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), an unprecedented sovereignty surrender masquerading as a multi-national trade pact.

Paul’s speech coincided with the TPP ministerial meeting conducted October 19-24 in Sydney, Australia.

Speaking at the Center for the National Interest dinner in New York City on October 23, Senator Paul said:

...President George W. Bush understood that part of the projection of American power is the exporting of American goods and culture. His administration successfully brokered fourteen new free trade agreements and negotiated three others that are the only new free trade agreements approved since President Obama took office. Instead of just talking about a so-called “pivot to Asia,” the Obama administration should prioritize negotiating the Trans-Pacific Partnership by year’s end.


Why would Rand Paul, a man who has in the past demonstrated a remarkable adherence to the principles of the Constitution, make his own “pivot” away from those doctrines and toward a pact as pernicious as the TPP? ...

5. I mean if it has the support of the Chamber of Commerce, multinationals, Wall St,

McConnell, the pharmaceutical industry, Paul, and the Rubinites then you know it has to be good for working class and poor folks always has been, am I right?

With a team like that you just can't lose for winning and obviously whatever possible concerns one might have about previous deals should be soothed by this brand new group of people first types.
