Make TPP a Dead Duck by Stopping a Lame Duck Vote

The recently-signed Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) was negotiated behind closed doors with hundreds of corporate advisors. It would make it easier to offshore good jobs, push down our wages, and undermine essential climate policies, affordable medicines, safe food & human rights.

It should not be approved, and certainly not during the “lame duck” session of Congress after the November election—when members are the least politically accountability to constituents.

Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders have both announced opposition to a lame duck vote on the TPP. But House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi has refused to take a position. Her public position will have enormous influence on how other House Democrats vote. Leader Pelosi not opposing Fast Track authority for the TPP last year is a major reason it passed and now we face this vote.
