Ian Fletcher - Leak Cracks Open Trans-Pacific Partnership ScandalQuicklink submitted by Hugh Campbell Permalink
|Thanks to a leak, we get a preview of how really bad the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is. The text of the treaty had been kept from the public during two years of closed-door negotiations, and now we know why: It does not reflect any of the changes that Obama promised as a candidate. It's more Bush-era same-old, same-old. What would a reasonable '21st-century' trade agreement, the kind Obama promised us as a candidate, look like? Well, it would probably embody the principles included in Coalition for a Prosperous America's petition. You can sign this petition on behalf of these principles by clicking the link at the end of Ian Fletcher's article.|
