“What Ryan is trying to convince House Republicans to do is vote for Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) which would fast-track at least three highly secretive trade deals—specifically the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP), the Trade in Services Agreement (TiSA), and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (T-TIP)—and potentially more deals.
Right now, TiSA and T-TIP text are completely secretive and unavailable for even members of Congress to read while TPP text is available for members to review—although they need to go to a secret room inside the Capitol where only members of Congress and certain staffers high-level security clearances, who can only go when members are present, can read the bill.”
There is nothing the fuck wrong with this at all. What could possibly be wrong with classified trade deals that the peoples Reps aren’t allowed to read?
The Republicans are proving once again that if you vote for them, your vote is wasted.
There is no stopping what is happening with a vote. There is no changing a system so far gone from it’s original form that it is unrecognizable.
Politics have failed us, politicians have failed us and now they drive us straight at the edge of the cliff.
When we hit bottom, just remember who was driving.
Ths will not be for restoration, but rather retribution.
Happy Thursday everyone.
