Congress is about to sign away it’s Constitutional right to oversee a huge trade deal called the Trans-Pacific Partnership (or TPP for short) — and members of Congress won’t even get a chance to read the agreement first! The text of the treaty is a closely-kept secret, but based on what’s leaked out of the negotiations, we can be sure the TPP will be a massive corporate power-grab.
Our last best hope to stop this deal is to convince Congressional Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi to come out against “fast-track” authority, which would surrender Congress’s right to amend the deal. We need to flood her office with calls to make sure Congress doesn’t pass NAFTA on steroids without reading it.

Someone wrote me and asked what we could do about the TPP. Not a lot! Call that number, for starters.
