The Trans Pacific Partnership is an override switch for all governments that sign it.. why should companies get a pass around the laws of our country?
How’s that working out for us so far?
The GPUS put together a good resource for those that want to get a few details on this ultimate corporate handout and our own prospective nominee for Senate, Arn Menconi, is featured in the article as well:
“The TPP, if enacted, would be a coup for corporate oligarchy and a blow to democracy and the public interest,” said Arn Menconi, Green candidate for the U.S. Senate in Colorado ( http://arnmenconi.com ). “It was negotiated in secret with the help of 600 ‘trade advisors’ from powerful multinational corporations. It would establish a mechanism to override democratically enacted laws by handing legislative and judicial power to a small panel of corporate lawyers. Through the Investor-State Dispute Settlement provisions, the TPP would hijack the U.S. legal system for the benefit of these same multinational corporations.”
