This rabid trade agreement, frequently referred to as "NAFTA on steroids" will increase the numbers of the working poor in the US as well as increase the depths of poverty to which they sink.

Everybody needs to pay attention to this! But will they? HALF of our population are now living in poverty. Like most scoundrels and sociopaths, the elite and their puppets, the government, use language that sounds benign. Free trade. That sounds good to the average Joe. What's not to like about removing trade barriers? But, as the article says:

"Trade barriers include environmental safeguards, fair labor practices, inexpensive and generic drugs, safety regulations, indigenous sovereignty, national borders, regulations on GMO’s, and input from the public. If the TPP were passed, it would deeply impact the poor of the United States and the world."

The Green Shadow Government has their work cut out for them! Thanks, Brian.
