Wall Street Senate Finance Committee Chair Max Baucus and House Ways & Means Committee Chair David Camp are expected to introduce their Fast Track bill as soon as Congress reconvenes in early January. In other words, Baucus and Camp are preparing the final, crushing legislative knockout punch to the middle class by redistributing more income from the 99 to the 1 percent, and weakening the political power of the 99 while strengthening that of the 1 percent, and all via the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP), the largest income redistribution scam of all time, and which is being pushed by Goldman Sachs Obama administration.

That’s why the White House had a full cabinet meeting last week to discuss how the entire administration will be pushing the TPP, and corporate lobbyists are not taking the holidays off either. They’ve already begun their full court press.

Fast Track authority allows the Senate and the US House of representatives to vote yes or no on the TPP without debate. There will, of course, be a ton of pressure put on senators and congress people by corporate lobbyists and members of the Obama regime.

It is critical that members of the 99 percent take advantage of the two weeks before the bill’s introduction to continue pressing members of the U.S. House of Representatives especially to oppose Fast Track. Now is the time to continue thanking Members of Congress who have already spoken out against Fast Track, and to registering your deep disappointment with any Member of Congress who has not.

If you represent an organization, it is not too late to request a holiday recess meeting with a Member of Congress to discuss Fast Track. If you’re acting as an individual, please take some time to do a “drop-in” office visit and leave a note asking your Representative to commit to opposing Fast Track. You can bring a holiday card you get your friends and family to sign — or one of the recent op-eds about the TPP linked to below.

Talking points about Fast Track are attached to help prepare you for any conversations you may have with Representatives or their staff.
