TPP is wrong direction for our nation’s economy

Unions care for workers and the middle class. U.S. Sens. Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell care for furthering their ALEC agendas and building their corporate connections. We only need to look at what NAFTA and GATT has done to the standing of our nation’s workforce to see the dark hole fast tracking this TPP trade deal with China, Vietnam and other Asian countries will pull us into.

I can not believe it but on this issue I find myself more aligned with tea party members then with many members of our own Democratic Party. Time to get ALEC and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce out of our political process and ditch Citizens United.
