I’m writing this letter to make aware to the American people a deal that steals our sovereignty. The Trans Pacific Partnership will place American businesses at a competitive disadvantage to foreign firms. Foreign companies will not be subject to the environmental regulations that American companies must obey. In addition, foreign companies will be able to go before an international tribunal to sue for damages if they believe American laws have cost them money. The TPP will destroy American jobs and our independence.
The TPP is a direct threat to American national sovereignty, the U.S. Constitution and American-owned businesses. TPP will have a negative impact on jobs, the safety of our food, Internet freedom, our right to Buy American and our laws.
President Obama’s U.S. Trade Representative has barred the American public and even members of Congress from reviewing what his office has been negotiating.
Congress has surrendered its responsibility under Article 8, Section 1 of the Constitution to regulate commerce with foreign nations, and has surrendered its ability to revise or amend the final agreement that President Obama negotiates and presents to Congress. Contact your congresswoman and senators and ask them if they stand for our sovereignty.
