What is President Barack Obama trying to hide?


WASHINGTON (AP) — Two of the Democratic Party's most vocal opponents of
strengthening President Barack Obama's hand in trade deals are taking issue with his
recent criticism and are calling on him to make public the draft text of a still
incomplete deal with 11 other Pacific rim nations.
Sens. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Sherrod Brown of Ohio sent Obama a letter
Saturday disputing his characterization of their position as "dishonest."

They said that while members of Congress can read the draft text of the Trans-Pacific Partnership
agreement, they are legally prevented from discussing it openly and the public is barred from
examining it.

JG: This TPP is like NAFTA. Deja vu all over again. This "agreement" favors big capitalist
corporations. It does not favor the working class.;_ylt=A0LEVrdDFU5VOj8AJAEnnIlQ;_ylu=X3oDMTE0N2toYzZyBGNvbG8DYmYxBHBvcwMzBHZ0aWQDRkZYVUkyMV8xBHNlYwNzcg--
