In public, after Bernie Sanders entered the Democratic presidential primary as a fierce opponent of the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP), a scam that will redistribute trillions of dollars a year from the 99 to the 1 percent while raping us of our tax dollars for social safety nets, fire schools, police, social security, etc.., Hillary Clinton abruptly became an opponent of the TPP, after having been a long-time supporter of it.
Leaked emails last week show Clinton told a private gathering of Wall Street executives, “My dream is a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders.”
Since Sanders entered the race, Hillary has said in public, “I oppose the TPP now, I’ll oppose it after the election, and I’ll oppose it as president.”
The TPP is a massive income redistribution scam that will compel US corporations to export millions of jobs from the USA. The difference between the old higher US wages and the new lower overseas wages goes straight into the wallets of Wall Street fat cats and CEO’s of the US job exporters.
As Secretary of State, Clinton should have had some access to the negotiations, otherwise, why would she call it the “gold standard” of trade agreements?
“Open borders” will quite naturally do the same trick. If a company cannot export a job, it will be able to import low wage workers to compete against US workers, driving down the price of labor, and enriching Wall Street fat cats and CEOs in the process. “Open borders” means only one thing; increase the supply of labor in order to drive down the price of labor.
The choices people who work for a living have in this presidential election are likely the worst in presidential history. Can Senator Warren still enter as an independent?
