26. TPP has nothing to do with any of that, per se. It's about trade rules.

It has labor and environmental regulations as part of it, which is the opposite of that definition of "neoliberal." It definitely has nothing to do with social service expenditures. Nor is it even remotely related to supply side economics, which is primarily based on the belief that tax cuts for the wealthy magically reduces deficits. Trade policy is distinct from tax policy.

Calling TPP "neo-liberal" is not an intelligent basis of opposition to it. This is just a bunch of ideological buzzwords.
