Senator Warren v. President Obama on the TPP
Senator Warren's office put our this report called Broken Promises. It highlights decades of failure to enforce labor standards in free trade agreements, including the Obama Administration. It notes how the President's rhetoric is strikingly similar to previous Presidents on what such agreements would accomplish, and all of them have failed to live up to the rhetoric. The report documents several details on how this is so, so please read it. These trade deals are a huge giveaway to multinational corporations and not much else, despite the lying spin.
