    The American people do not trust President Obama. And they do not trust Republican leadership in Congress. And the reason is simple: for far too long, politicians in Washington have not told the truth.

    Both President Obama and Republican leadership are pressing trade promotion authority, also known as TPA, or “fast-track.” Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) 9% and Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) 2% both oppose it.

    As a general matter, I agree (as did Ronald Reagan) that free trade is good for America; when we open up foreign markets, it helps American farmers, ranchers, and manufacturers.

    But TPA in this Congress has become enmeshed in corrupt Washington backroom deal-making, along with serious concerns that it would open up the potential for sweeping changes in our laws that trade agreements typically do not include.

    Obama has seized enough power without giving him more. Also has anyone read the bill?

    No common folks that I know of. Just the elite transnational CEO's and/or their lawyers, some un-elected foreign bureaucrats and their privileged political underclassman in the "member states".

    Being a corporate fascist must have it's advantages.

    The way they're pushing it, it sounds like it's going to be a sweet deal for all of them.
