Congress “No Longer Necessary” If Job-Killing TPP Passes
On January 9, 2014, Congress introduced a bill to fast track the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a trade agreement of 12 countries being negotiated in secret between 600 US corporations and the US Trade Rep. The public, the press and most members of Congress have not seen the text of this agreement. That day 40 people protested in front of LA area Congressman Xavier Becerra’s office because he did not sign letter pledging to vote against fast track. As a result, the TPP Movers were there to outsource his office to Vietnam.
