Senator Jeff Sessions is Right: Take TPP Off The Fast Track

Petition to Congressional Leadership: Take TPA Off the Fast Track

To: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Speaker of the House Paul Ryan
 

Senator Jeff Sessions is right: There’s too much corporate welfare, too much cronyism and corrupt dealmaking, by the Washington cartel in the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

The text of the Trans-Pacific Partnership runs 5,554 pages.  This is, by definition, anti-democratic. 

No individual American has the resources to ensure his or her economic and political interests are safeguarded within this vast global regulatory structure. 

Among the TPP’s endless pages are rules for labor, environment, immigration and every aspect of global commerce – and a new international regulatory structure to promulgate, implement, and enforce these rules.  This new structure is known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership Commission – a Pacific Union – which meets, appoints unelected bureaucrats, adopts rules, and changes the agreement after adoption.

Through those anti-constitutional provisions it puts those who make the rules out of reach of those who live under them, empowering unelected, transnational regulators and bureaucrats who cannot be recalled or voted out of office.  In turn, it diminishes the power of the people’s bulwark: their constitutionally-formed Congress.

Clearly, powerful forces will have their voices heard and find ways to profit immensely from this conglomeration, but what of everyday wage-earning Americans? 

For too long, career politicians in both parties have supported government of the lobbyist, by the lobbyist, and for the lobbyist – at the expense of the taxpayers. It’s a time for truth. And the time for the Republican leadership of Congress to honor their commitments to the voters.

These 5,554 pages are like the Lilliputians binding down Gulliver.

They will enmesh our great country, and economy, in a global commission where bureaucrats from Brunei have the same vote as the United States.

I agree with Senator Jeff Sessions: TPP must be taken off Fast-Track and handled according to regular order so that American sovereignty will be protected and the working men and women of American won’t be forgotten again.
