The Pen: Action Page: The Trans Pacific Partnership is Toxic and They Know It

Posting The Pen’s new letter and call to action re. TPP: Please click on the action page link below and sign to send a note to your Congress reps. and local newspaper.


Dear —-,

We are having an amazing impact on defeating the so-called Trans
Pacific Partnership, but only because tens of thousands of our own
participants, and many others, continue to speak out against it every
chance we get.

And we know we’re having an impact because John Boehner was on TV
Sunday morning literally begging for Hillary Clinton to throw her
support to it. Imagine that, begging for Democrats to help support
this toxic turkey, so fewer Republicans have to suffer the inevitable
blowback. Does this mean he would support Hillary Clinton for
president in return?

If you need to know more about why this thing is so bad, please read
the link in the petition text on the action page itself below about
the ties to multi-national corporations.

So let’s keep submitting and keep the pressure on:

TPP Is Toxic Action Page: http://www.peaceteam.net/tpp_toxic.php

And here is the petition text:

This last weekend the House Majority Leader said this on Meet The
Press about the so-called Trans Pacific Partnership:

“We’ve got the majority here in the House and the Senate, but we
can’t do this by ourselves.”

Since when did a party in total control of Congress not have the
power to pass anything they want?

And the answer is, since someone tried to browbeat members of the
House in particular into passing one of the most repulsive and
deceptive measures ever, to abdicate all meaningful congressional
authority over trade policy, and by top secret agreement to surrender
the interests of the American people to the tender mercies of
multi-national corporations.

This is one toxic hot potato. Drop it. And leave it dropped.


And after you submit the action page, feel free to request one of our
“Expressway To Trade Hell TPP” bumper stickers. We will send you one
for no charge, not even shipping. And you can request it directly
