Candidate Obama on Trade Agreements

Contrast this with his administration's pushing of the Trans-Pacific Partnership. Leaked copies of the deal give corporations preferred legal channels that bypass our judicial system.

U.S. corporate money is now political speech and corporate trade beefs may soon be above the law. Obama had six years to act on his NAFTA concerns. He's violating those very concerns in his administration's handling of TPP negotiations. I would call it irony but it's more like political chicanery.  Obama will be handsomely rewarded for his service to the Billionaire Boys.
