President Obama is NOT wrong - olgalazin@gmail.com - Gmail

No TTP:

Olga, sign if you agree with CREDO and Daily Kos: Time for Congress to stand up and oppose the TPP.
During his State of the Union address, President Obama will launch his final push to pressure Congress to pass the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a "trade" deal that would eviscerate broad swaths of regulations that protect consumers, workers, the environment and the soundness of our financial system. It would also set up a legal regime where corporate profits trump the policy priorities of sovereign governments.

With the text of the deal now public, even some key Republicans who supported Fast Track authority for approving the TPP are now saying theycannot support the trade deal as it stands.

That means the President currently does not have the votes to pass the TPP.
We need to keep it that way and thwart any momentum toward passage of the TPP in this Congress.

Sign the petition from CREDO and Daily Kos to Congress: Stand up and oppose the TPP.
Just days ago Canadian pipeline developer TransCanada launched a suit against the U.S. government demanding billions of dollars for President Obama’s historic rejection of Keystone XL. As Sen. Elizabeth Warren and fellow environmental activists pointed out, the suit leverages a legal panel of international lawyers set up under NAFTA which is not accountable by appeal or review to American courts. TPP would expand this same dangerous provision designed to give corporations power over our legal system to a dozen more countries.

While Congress cannot amend or filibuster the TPP, they do still have to vote yes or no on it. Already some Republicans have come out against this awful deal, so if we are able to confront the big money interests behind this treaty
