Lol as if it's only Obama pushing for this deal. Did we already forget how fast the GOP lined up to suck his dick to get the fast track bill passed?

Edit: that's what really concerns me about the whole deal. When you have two sides that have fought tooth and nail on every single issue his entire presidency line up to quickly get a massive secret trade deal passed, you know you're completely fucked.

The Repubs and Dems are two faces of the same puppeteer. I am glad to see some candidates that at least seem to opposed to the routine (Sanders, Trump and Paul)

Everything I've seen indicates that someone put the screws to the Republican leadership, who in turn put the screws to the GOP membership.

I'm not saying that's a good thing but before that, they certainly weren't for fast track. Furthermore, painting this to comply with the common narrative of the Big Bad Republicans is not going to help since every vote that can be secured against TPP is valuable regardless of political party.

I don't think the TPP involves raising tariffs on China(though that picture reminds me of a fun fact: made-to-order suits from Hong Kong are the only item subject to hard quotas in the US; every other "quotad" item just gets the tariff jacked way up after the limit's been hit).
