US Fails To Close TPP Deal As Wikileaks Exposes Discord

US Fails To Close TPP Deal As Wikileaks Exposes Discord | Federal Politics | Scoop.it
The latest round of talks over the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) have failed to lead to a resolution, with ministers confirming that debate is likely to continue into next year.
Party Recon's insight:

Thank the Lord!  This gives us more time to demand transparency and then kill this abomination.  But remember, the action here is not to write your congressmen.  This is being driven solely by the White House.  That is where your anger should be focused.  Here's a site set up to help you easily Tweet and post your opinion to Facebook, and it will take you no more than 5 minutes to complete it.  Stand up and be heard America!  http://www.coffeepartyusa.com/tpp_petition ;

The People Can Defeat the Trans-Pacific Partnership

The People Can Defeat the Trans-Pacific Partnership | Federal Politics | Scoop.it
Time to end the failed experiment with rigged corporate trade and put in place fair trade for the people and planet before profits.
Party Recon's insight:

Torpedo the TPP!  If we can't kill it, we at least need to demand transparancy.  This so-called free trade agreement is subterfuge and crony capitalism at its finest folks.  Take 15 minutes out of your day and Google the TPP.  Find out how the President is putting the final coffin in the coffin of the middle class by making it even easier to outsource jobs, while at the same time making an end run around the legislative process by putting into effect the guts of the SOPA and PIPA bills that were soundly defeated in Congress last year.
