The simple person's guide to the TPP

For 7 or so years, the Republicans in congress have voted against anything president Obama wanted to to. Didn't matter if the thing he wanted to do was not really different from the thing they wanted to do, they just made a point of voting against him.

Then along comes the TPP and fast track authority. Suddenly, they are fluffy bunnies. They want to vote WITH the president. Why is that?

It's simple.

It's because the TPP fits their overall agenda of enabling corporations at the expense of everyone else.

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that the TPP is not good for working Americans. Republicans love it enough to agree with president Obama, something they just do not like to do no matter what.

All those folks who have suddenly showed up here explaining that trade agreements are good for everyone are nothing but fucking liars and probably paid liars at that.
