We have a strange situation in the US where opponents of the TPP have spent 2015 going all-out to promote Hillary Clinton for president. Before launching her pre-campaign speaking tour, Clinton was busy promoting the TPP. As people learned more about the it, and opposition grew, Clinton avoided the issue. Finally, this week she made a statement, saying that she doesn't support the TPP -- in spite of the public record showing otherwise. What's really weird is that people get furious when someone points this out.
The TPP is actually a logical next step after NAFTA (often called, "NAFTA on steroids"). Bill Clinton had signed on to NAFTA, which liberals also opposed, but hey, who doesn't love Big Bill? Why? I don't know. Why the liberal support for Hillary Clinton, in spite of her long, solid record of support for the right wing agenda -- pro-war, anti-poor, pro-corporate empowerment, anti-New Deal? I don't know that, either.
