The amazing thing here is that this mess that the USTR and President Obama are in right now over TPP was easily avoidable. Rather than negotiating in secret, and only sharing drafts with a select group of deep industry insiders, they easily could have and should have opened the discussion up publicly. The USTR should have released its own negotiating drafts from the very beginning, so that the public and Congress could weigh in while the process was ongoing. That way, there would be no surprises and no concerns. Instead, they kept the public and Congress out of it entirely -- putting extra special precautions against the public or Congress from finding out what was going on, so that we know the final product will have massive problems. And now they want Congress to just say "Sure, we trust you got it right"? Really? The USTR screwed this one up badly, and it's good to see Congress pushing back on this blatant attempt to usurp Congress' own powers.
Sounds like you are still operating under the assumption we live with a government that works for the people, We dont.
If you didnt realize it yet, The system is gaming the public. Both sides are an illusion to think you have choice when you have very little. Width draw your support from it and it will crumble under its own weight. Dont give it any more recognition. and start focusing on people and efforts that are more community driven.
