Trans Pacific Partnership - Sent this to my senators this morning

More treachery afoot in Washington DC. Congress and the Exec Branch appear to be working in concert to orchestrate the next leg-down in America's standard of living on behalf of their corporate cronies. 

Sent this letter to Georgia's senators this morning:

Enough is enough. 
We don't want another item rushed through Congress where we, as the people, are not allowed to see the content prior to passage.  
This things have a way of turning out to be the opposite of what was claimed prior to the vote. 
Based on available information, the proposed Trans Pacific Partnership pact appears packed with content detrimental to these United States.  
It is disappointing to see Republican leadership taking its cues from Barack Obama and trying to rush through passage.  
This is not how America's supposed to be governed. 
The madness has got to stop. This treacherous trade treaty must be defeated before it takes declining America on its next leg down.
A similar email was sent to my Congressman yesterday.

Our America is being gutted to the bone to benefit those with greedy self-interest, yet too many people, including many of those who see it for what it is, still fail to raise their voices to object.

  1. Hey Doug;

    I did the same, I didn't use the word "depraved self interest" once. I stuck to the facts and a reminder that Former speaker of the house Nanci Pelosi quote " We have to pass it to know what is in it.".is poor governance. And the voting public is angry with the runup to the 2016 elections.
