fresh voices from the front lines of change







Twenty-eight Democrats on Friday sided with Wall Street and the big multinational corporations against 99 percent of Americans. They voted to pass fast-track trade promotion authority, which preapproves the still-secret Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and future so-called "trade" agreements.

These lawmakers voted to send jobs and factories out of the country, to allow non-U.S. corporations (and foreign subsidiaries of U.S. corporations) to sue our government if we try to pass laws that might interfere with their profits. (And those are just some of the things we know are in TPP from leaks.)

Here are their names:

Brad Ashford (Neb.-2nd District)
Ami Bera (Calif.-7th District)
Don Beyer (Va.-8th District)
Earl Blumenauer (Ore.-3rd District)
