The TPP Trans Pacific Partnership is a betrayal of voters and the 99% throughout the world, not just the USA.
Clinton's position on the proposal is complicated by her time as secretary of state, and she's been careful as a presidential candidate not to express a firm position.
There's evidence to suggest Clinton was deeply involved in the deal's formation and promotion as the country's lead diplomat. In 2011, she told a congressional committee that even though the State Department was not in charge of the negotiations, "we work closely with the U.S. (Trade Representative)." Leaked diplomatic cables show Clinton's deputies specifically discussed the TPP with foreign heads of state.
Clinton openly pushed for the deal at least 45 times during her tenure as secretary of state, according to CNN's tally."
It will be interesting to see what Hillary and the Republican primary candidates say about TPP.
