If the TPP is approved, the United States will lose jobs as even more major companies move their operations overseas.

If this trend continues, our grandchildren will be working in sweatshops for businesses headquartered in Beijing and Kolkata.

Neither Republicans nor Democrats care about this country, or what it represents, or the people who voted them into office. It's time to support "third party" candidates and tell GOP and Dems alike where they can stick their worthless promises.

I agree strongly with you Freya. The American people have been thrown under the bus by our so called Leaders as they cater to only the Wall Street types.

Within the article it read:

The key to defeating the TPP at this point is to employ a "vampire strategy," according to Arthur Stamoulis, executive director of Citizens Trade Campaign: Drag it out of the shadows and into the sunlight, then watch it burst into flames.

I thank you Brian for placing this on here, as with myself, trying to throw light onto this TPP. If you enjoyed the disaster of NFTA then TPP will be only worse.

I agree with Freya and Dandelion. Why are both Parties supporting TPP? Their gravy train depends on it! It's increasingly hard to bring out the truth in the light of day. Our country has been getting a large piece of the world pie, and TPP will level that playing field. "Free Trade" agreements sound benign, don't they? We The People have no access to the TPP as it's being developed. Only the heads of 600 corporations have full access. I wonder if one were to poll people on the street, how many would have ever even heard of the TPP, let alone having some notion of what it's about. Thanks for this post, Brian.
