I’m all for trade. But I’m not about fasting tracking agreements that subvert democracy, concentrate more wealth into the hands of the wealthy, and undermine the well-being of the working people.
In the Tpp’s current state, that’s exactly what would happen. Complicated trade agreements need a lot of time to hash out. But there are many people who stand to benefit by rushing it through because there’s a lot of money to be made. One of those ways is by suing governments for putting the environment above the dollar.
Currently, the Tpp will only generate income for the wealthy.
(Not so) Fun fact: the wealthy already have everything.
Please, Senator Wyden, vote “No” on Fast Track and keep pushing to make draft text available. I understand private meetings, but not a complete unwillingness to be transparent. Please, vote “No” on Fast Track and urge others to do the same.
