The agreement is between the U.S. and 11 other countries including third world countries like Vietnam and Brunei.

The Secret TTIP Agenda Is a Corporate Power Grab


Just how many economy-killing “free trade” agreements is our so-called Commander-in-Chief going to sign America up for? It should be noted that “free trade” agreements in the past haven’t exactly played out to the benefit of the average American.
