"Fast Track" Flouts the Constitution

On Saturday, just a few days after the president accused her of spreading "misinformation," about the TPP trade deal I like to call SHAFTA, the Massachusetts senator hit back hard in a letter to the White House.

While the Obama administration has, she pointed out, given 500 or so corporate lobbyists inside access to TPP negotiations, it has left the public completely in the dark.

In fact, as Senator Warren went on to write, "It is currently illegal for the press, experts, advocates, or the general public to review the text of this agreement. And while ... Members of Congress may 'walk over ... and read the text of the agreement' -- as we have done -- [we] are prohibited by law from discussing the specifics of that text in public."

That's right -- members of Congress, the elected representatives of "We the People" can't talk to the public about the biggest trade treaty in US history.
