TPP Media

The Trans-Pacific Partnership is a “free trade” agreement that, if passed, would unite the economies of Australia, Brunei, Chile, Malaysia, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, Vietnam, Mexico, Canada, Japan and the United States. The trade negotiators from these countries meet secretively behind closed doors to continue their work on drafting the terms of the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement (TPP). Little has been revealed about what is discussed during the closed-door meetings, other than the fact that the lobbyists and government representatives want to “accelerate” the trade negotiations. When it is finalized, the consequences for the United States will be disastrous. Below are six reasons how the TPP affects you.

We cannot compete with these wages so we are forced to choose between going bankrupt, outsourcing nearly all of our manufacturing, or simply selling out.

The Real Cost Of “Free Trade” Is Too Great For Americans to Bear

“Free trade” would more accurately be called “freedom for other countries to undercut and destroy American domestic production” because in practice that is what is happening. This is an undeniable fact that should be obvious to any consumer or business in this country. Very little of what is consumed here is made by American-owned companies operating in America. This was not formerly the case, and it was not how the wealth of this country was created.
