TPP: Terrible Plutocratic Plan


The TPP is actually the Trans-Pacific Partnership, more commonly known as NAFTA on steroids. The U.S. government is secretly negotiating this treaty with Pacific nations.  Here are a few highlights of what whistleblowers have revealed is in this fundamentally anti-democratic treaty:
  • Corporate nationhood, empowering corporations to sue real nations and overturn their laws.
  • Job offshoring.
  • Damage to food safety and environmental protections.
  • Enrichment of drug companies at the expense of health, and banning some generic drugs.
  • Further deregulating banks, and forbidding the breaking up of too-big-to-fail financial firms.
  • Censoring the internet.
