Just say NO to the TPP. Not now. Not ever.

Starting with NAFTA, "free trade" deals have devastated working families across America: 5 million good-paying jobs vanished. Tens of thousands of factories shuttered. Entire communities economically wiped off the map. Middle class families impoverished.

The Trans-Pacific Partnership is no different. It enforces no minimum wage, forcing American workers to "compete" with workers overseas earning $2 per hour or less. The minimal labor and environmental protections it contains would be difficult to enforce -- and as we've seen with every other trade deal, gross violations in other countries are hardly ever challenged.

The TPP would even allow foreign corporations to sue the United States in unaccountable tribunals if they assert that our laws and regulations protecting consumers, workers, or the environment are hurting their profits.

Take action and join me: We say NO to the TPP. Not now. Not during the "lame duck." Not EVER.
