Congress is expected to vote on Fast Track
legislation in January. If Fast Track passes, President Obama will send the notorious Trans-Pacific Partnership to be voted
on in Congress under rules that force a vote and prohibit
any amendments to the agreement, rendering Congress powerless to
modify the most egregiously undemocratic, anti-environment,
anti-worker, and anti-health provisions of a trade agreement
described as a "backroom trade deal for
the 1%" and "NAFTA on steroids."
