Washington Continues To Cater To Greedy Corporations Instead Of Protecting U.S. Freedoms

  1. 1. Washington Continues To Cater To Greedy Corporations Instead Of Protecting U.S. Freedoms February 28, 2014 Jordan Bailey No comments For some reason many of our leaders have some weird fixation with job-killing “free trade” agreements that cater to the corporatists of society. We saw it with the presidents of the past — Reagan, Clinton, and both of the Bushes. Now we’re beginning to see it with our current President, Barack Obama. President Obama’s apparent love with “free trade” is a bit odd considering that fact that, before becoming president, he was opposed to “free trade” agreements such as CAFTA and NAFTA. In fact, he claimed as a Senator that “free trade” is bad for America! Then he became president and suddenly his true feelings were revealed. He sees nothing wrong with “free trade,” despite the fact that it results in skyrocketing trade deficits, soaring national debt, job losses and outsourcing. He’s even implemented the Korean – U.S. “free trade” agreement since becoming our Commander-In-Chief and has aspirations of a one-world economic system he hopes to bring to fruition through the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and the Transatlantic Free Trade Area (TAFTA), often referred to as the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). The public should be up in arms about these two pet projects of President Obama — the TPP and TAFTA/TTIP — because they will not only override American laws, but we

President Obama is keeping any and all details surrounding the so-called “free trade” agreements a secret from those who elected him because he know’s how unpopular they would be if we ever found out the details! Even more disconcerting is that the TPP and TAFTA/TTIP aren’t even really “free trade” agreements so much as they are partnerships between greedy corporations and their puppets in government. The two partnerships feature “investor-state” dispute resolution, which will effectively allow mega corporations to sue governments for actions that they just don’t like, such as health and safety regulations. By allowing these provisions, President Obama is elevating corporations to the level of nation states and allowing them to sue governments over nearly any law or policy which risks reducing their future profits. Other provisions in President Obama’s two partnerships will set rules dictating to Congress and our legislators what laws and regulations they can pass or enforce in areas like: intellectual property rights like patents and copyrights, government procurement like Buy American which would be banned, investment and land use, service-sector regulation, food and product safety, corporate competition, labor, even environmental standards. Also with the passage of the TPP and TAFTA/TTIP President Obama will willing sign away our U.S. sovereignty. These two partnerships will combine to become a new global system of trade where corporations, not individual governments, are in charge. They will result in even higher trade deficits and will send even more jobs, factories and industries out of the country while simultaneously further increasing income and wealth inequality! President Obama is going to allow all of this and more. Contact your congressional representative[1] now and urge them to protest President Obama’s “free trade” agenda!
