"The Obama administration, House GOP leader John Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell have sold out American sovereignty. Their so-called Trans-Pacific Partnership Commission will have sweeping authority over trade, immigration, environmental, labor and commerce regulations." source
Secrecy in a trade bill? I smell a rat. President originally promised to run a transparent administration, and that plainly did not happen. Obama shoved the "Affordable Care Act" down our throats, and I'll go out on a limb and state that Obama never read the bill. Pelosi announced that we had to pass the bill before we find out what's in it. I doubt if any Congressman or Congresswoman ever read it. It was too big to read. And it appears that this is the way Congress and the President can run the country without involving the voters. Create bills too big for anyone to read. The press ain't about to read it. They're no help at all. And now Paul Ryan, whom I thought was a respectable politician, comes out with this statement. ‘It’s Declassified And Made Public Once It’s Agreed To’ I reject this kind of legislation, as being deceitful and anti-Democratic.
What is the next "too big to read" legislation? What do the elite politicians want to shove down
our throats? This is a splendid rationale for term limits. Politicians, with their re-election campaign
machines and gerrymandering, are now so powerful, they feel they do not have to answer to the public.
