Corporate America Wins Again

WASHINGTON - Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) expressed deep disappointment today after the Senate voted 60-47 to cut off debate and advance legislation that would grant President Barack Obama powers to complete a major Pacific trade accord.

“The vote today – pushed by multi-national corporations, pharmaceutical companies and Wall Street – will mean a continuation of disastrous trade policies which have cost our country millions of decent-paying jobs,” said Sanders, who voted no.
