The most recent publications definitively show that it is, in fact, U.S. negotiators trying to force these draconian provisions into the pact, and that in many instances, our trading partners in other countries are trying to resist them.

This Saturday will mark the four-year anniversary of the Obama administration's closed-door attempts to complete the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) Free Trade Agreement. Please tell Congress four years of secretive negotiations is more than enough.

The administration missed yet another self-imposed deadline for completing the negotiations in Singapore earlier today because it has been pushing the wrong agenda from the start.

Leaked TPP documents first published by Citizens Trade Campaign (CTC) two years ago and more recent documents published by WikiLeaks and the HuffingtonPost reveal that the Obama administration is demanding TPP provisions that threaten family-wage jobs, a healthy environment, financial stability, access to life-saving medications, consumer safety and family farms at home and abroad.

The most recent publications definitively show that it is, in fact, U.S. negotiators trying to force these draconian provisions into the pact, and that in many instances, our trading partners in other countries are trying to resist them.

It is bad enough that we have to rely on leaked texts to learn what the White House has been proposing for the TPP in our names, and then to discover that the administration is attempting to bully countries that are supposed to be our allies. But now the administration is even urging Congress to pass "Fast Track" legislation that would enable the TPP to circumvent ordinary Congressional review, amendment and debate procedures.

Enough is enough! TAKE ACTION NOW: Urge Congress to publicly oppose Fast Track and demand that all TPP texts be released for public scrutiny.

This "NAFTA on Steroids" agenda that the White House is pushing on behalf of Wall Street, the Chamber of Commerce and other big corporate interests can be stopped. But only if we take action and demand that our Congressmembers do the same.

Many thanks,

Arthur Stamoulis, Executive Director
CITIZENS TRADE CAMPAIGN

The TPP, whether from the American perspective or the Canadian, is "scary shit" that cannot be allowed to be put in place. In the US, Citizens United is scary enough with its ability to give voice and power to corporations. NAFTA is yet another issue. But the TPP would make corporations sovereign over governments. That's the dog wagging the tail!

Done

Oops! that last comment should read "That's the tail wagging the dog!"

I guess it shows that I am a cat person!
