In the White House Press conference today, they rolled out the TPP. The mayor of Atlanta and the Governor of OH, John Kasich spoke about how wonderful it would be. Like Hillary, Obama is reaching out to republicans to get this turd of legislation passed. As noted in other articles here on Common Dreams, among the problems with TPP, is that it could be used to lock in climate change through support and new powers to energy companies.
In the book "The Deep State: The Fall of the Constitution and the Rise of a Shadow Government" the author describes how Kasich and Bill Clinton worked together to craft the legislation that removed Glass Stegall regulation of banks.
Fitting that Kasich is on the stage with Obama's team!!!
Both parties work for the oligarchs and legislation like TPP will make it much, much harder to get our republic back. And it might not be possible to restore the rule of law because the coup d'etat has gone so far.
