DeFazio on the secret Trans Pacific Partnership "free trade" negotiations

US Representative Peter DeFazio addresses Congress on the pitfalls of the secret “free” trade agreement known as the Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement. This video predates Japan joining the TPP . . . listen to the “hit” the US car industry will take with Japan joining . . . it also predates US Representative Alan Grayson actually getting a chance to view the document, who ultimately said it was a “huge punch in the face to the middle class of America.” He further said, “The TPP is nicknamed “NAFTA on steroids.” Now that I’ve read it, I can see why. I can’t tell you what’s in the agreement, because the U.S. Trade Representative calls it classified. But I can tell you two things about it.1) There is no national security purpose in keeping this text secret.

2) This agreement hands the sovereignty of our country over to corporate interests.”

Final conclusion from US Representative DeFazio, “Kiss our economy good bye if this secret agreement goes through.”
