But the agreement will deliver power to a few influential multinational corporations...
Exactly. The right people will get richer and more powerfuler. It's win-win.

“an independent, bipartisan, quasi-judicial, federal agency of the United States that provides trade expertise to both the legislative and executive branches,”

Wow, say that 10 times fast.

Whoa whoa whoa - this is COMPLETELY unfair and inaccurate.

Some will end up in European tax havens too.

As long as we’re being fair to all tax havens…

“anti-democratic”

But but we live in a democracy!!! It’s all about hard work and voting damnit!

(extra credit: this is how Hillary’s government will “get things done”- sign something like a secret TPP, and in turn get something like marriage equality. Hopefully the unemployment office is in the same building as the marriage certificates are signed, will save some trips!)
