"How low would we go to get the next NAFTA-style deal?"
I am going to call this bogus framing out for what it is.
How much of the TIPP and TPP have to do with "We"?
WE, which is to say the citizenry, has been 100% kept out of the loop. These trade deals--which some wise souls, thanks to Wikileaks exposing some of their content--have been described as ultimate deregulation. They are far more about erasing environmental and labor LAWS (of sovereign nations) than about trade, per se.
WE have nothing to do with them!
The elites wrote these trade agreements for THEIR purposes.
What part of the conclusion drawn from "The Page and Gilens Study" does Mr. Sorscher fail to get?
What part of the facts of Globalism and the financial servitude it's ushering in as revealed by the financial logistics of the Piketty Study is Mr. Sorscher ignoring?
This is nothing that WE, the PEOPLE endorse... heck, senators aren't even allowed to take notes when they view the TPP and TIPP in secret closed rooms!
Since transparency and the consent of the governed form the fundamentals of Democracy and BOTH are missing, do not DARE attribute the devious decisions drawn up by elites to the great amorphous "WE" that's intended to define the population pool!
It is a LIE! And one that's told far too often in these days of oligarchy and/or Inverted Totalitarian Rule.
Already the Press Corps has sent out willing writers to rewrite the history of this recent pre-election debacle. Using every trick in their tool-chests to install Hillary, they will THEN argue that with her nomination comes consent for TIPP and TPP. As friggin if!
