Dear Concerned Citizen,
Well big business is definitely getting their money’s worth out of the Obama presidency. And they are trying to squeeze out as much capitulation from Obama and the congress as they can, before his term is ended.
Namely by fast tracking a global trade agreement that not only consolidates more power in the hands of business, but also eradicates oversight and the concept of repeal. From EFF:
“Barack Obama used his State of the Union address last night to call on
Congress for a “fast track” for trade agreements like the Trans-Pacific
Partnership (TPP). The pressure’s on Congress, and that means *it’s never
been more urgent* that we stop the secrecy surrounding this undemocratic
What’s so dangerous about “fast track”? If Congress passes the bill
(HR3830/S.1900), it severely limits its own ability to review or amend
agreements. That means Hollywood won’t have to worry about our
elected representatives standing in the way of TPP and its extreme
copyright provisions. That’s why we need to stop the Fast Track
bill–to defeat TPP.
If you’re a US voter, visit StopFastTrack.com now to call and message
your elected representatives. “

opposing this bill, and find out more HERE!
