On Tuesday, President appeared on Hardball to defend the Trans Pacific Partnership, a massive income and political power redistribution agreement. It will take income and voting rights from the 99 percent on behalf of the 1 percent. Leaked documents from the negotiations reveal this to be true. President Obama said US Senator Elizabeth Warren’s critique of the deal was wrong. See what the president, and Wall Street Senator’s Ron Wyden, Orrin Hatch and Mitch McConnell have in store for you at https://johnhively.wordpress.com/2015/04/17/wall-street-senator-ron-wyden-introduces-bill-into-the-us-senate-to-increase-income-and-wealth-inequality-in-the-united-states-and-throughout-the-pacific-rim/
On Wednesday, Warren responded via Twitter.
“The Obama Admin says I’m wrong — we shouldn’t worry about TPP. So why can’t the American people read the deal?” she questioned.
It was a direct attack against the administration’s handling of the negotiations, which liberals say have lacked transparency.
The administration argues that it hasn’t made the deal public to protect the status of the sensitive, ongoing negotiations.
Obama is attempting to build a bipartisan congressional coalition to support the 12-nation pact that he says would help economic growth and provide fair guidelines for workers.
He’s asking Congress to grant him trade promotion authority — or “fast-track” power — that’d allow him to negotiate trade deals without them being amended in Congress.
In a blog post that accompanied Warren’s tweet, she doubled down in her criticism of Obama.
“The Administration says I’m wrong — that there’s nothing to worry about,” Warren wrote. “They say the deal is nearly done, and they are making a lot of promises about how the deal will affect workers, the environment, and human rights. Promises — but people like you can’t see the actual deal.”
