Who supports TPP fast track besides Obama?
Jon Nichols reports that tomorrow night the President will likely address the huge income disparity in the US, as he has done before. But when it comes to how to fix it he will be at odds with his entire base if he continues to support fast tracking the TPP. Labor unions, environmental organizations and progressive legislators are unamiously against it. So who is for it? Beside corporate lackeys in Congress? The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), the folks who brought you stand your ground gun laws and voter suppression bills. Is this who Obama really wants to side with on this important issue?
