Watch TPP Outsource A Congressman’s Office

Dave Johnson

If we let Congress pre-approve the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) with Fast Track we won’t need Congress anymore. Corporations will decide what the rules should be.

This is for real. The next round of “NAFTA-style” trade agreements actually let corporate courts — with corporate attorneys as the judges — stop countries from passing laws that interfere with profits. Treaties like these already let tobacco companies sue countries to block government-sponsored anti-smoking campaigns. This is for real.

So essentially passing Fast Track outsources Congress members’ jobs. See for yourself:

Get ready now for the Fast Track Fight. Call your member of Congress and let them know you say NO FAST TRACK.
