Ok I'm seeing people who are making comments that make it very clear that they are not paying close enough attention to what is going on with the #TPP right now. Yes, the official push on the TPP failed last week, but the new bill they are trying to pass this Tuesday (the TAA) would grant fast-track authority on ALL agreements for 6 years! This inherently includes the #TPP, #TTIP and #TISA. They don't care how they get fast-track authority as long as they get it. If you see people making comments claiming that the fast-track battle is over, please correct them. We're about to get blind sided with this if we don't get the message out.
"You may have heard about the failed attempt to pass "Fast Track" authority for the TPP in the House on Friday, June 12th. The public applied pressure and they backed down. You may have assumed that we would have a few months of breathing room before they made another attempt. However it turns out that Congress isn't even going to wait a full week for round two.
According to senator Jeff Sessions, there is upcoming vote on Tuesday June 17th, for a bill called the TAA. Hidden in the TAA is a provision which would grant the president fast-track authority on any and all trade agreements for a period of six years. This would inherently include the TPP, TTIP and TISA."
