Most Republicans are lining up, being the good corporate servants (rather than serving their constituents, just like most Democrats) that they are, to vote yes for fast-tracking Obama's latest trade deals. It just shows how far gone they are, down the corporate brain take-over. There are good conservative reasons not to support TPP or fast-track.
1- it's a secret document that they have not been able to have their staff experts help them evaluate. Most have probably not seen the whole bill at all. They'd be voting blind. Think of a congressional glory hole (a sexually disgusting, dangerous concept, but it fits.)
2- TPP will hand federal, local and state sovereignty to foreign corporations, nations and individuals. Do you really want a Chinese or Saudi corporation or agency to be able to dictate United States Policy.
3- This is something that President Obama wants REAL bad. Since when do conservatives support legislation that Obama wants passed.
Any more reasons? Please add them in the comments.
