Corporations Bribe Senators to Vote for TPP Fast-Track

1-TPP secret The U.S. Senate is full of men and women who paid for their office and now expect to be paid for using the power they bought. The latest example comes from the vote on granting the president trade-promotion authority (TPA) — power to “fast track” passage of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). The Guardian reports that “Fast-tracking the TPP, meaning its passage through Congress without having its contents available for debate or amendments, was only possible after lots of corporate money exchanged hands with senators.” In other words, senators — each of whom swore an oath to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution — have been bribed to ignore our founding document and deliver power over the country’s trade policy to the president and globalist bureaucrats who will manage the TPP. Remarkably, the votes on the legislation accomplishing this atrocity weren’t even close. On May 14, the Senate approved the TPA bill 65-33 and then 62 of those same senators voted a few days later to shut down debate on the matter. How much money would it take to convince those “impress majorities” to violate their oaths of office and sacrifice American sovereignty on the altar of “free trade? http://www.thenewamerican.com/usnews/congress/item/21040-corporations-bribe-senators-to-vote-for-tpp-fast-track?utm_source=Newsletter&utm_campaign=95d7d8f226-The_Editors_Top_Picks_3_12_143_12_2014&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_8ca494f2d2-95d7d8f226-289795749
