Dear 5849376,

Stop the TPP

President Obama and an army of corporate lobbyists have been campaigning hard to ram the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) through Congress this fall in the post election lame-duck session of Congress.

A lame-duck vote on the TPP could be very close. Last year, 28 House Democrats voted for "fast track trade authority"1 – the undemocratic attempt to prevent Congress from fully vetting secretive trade deals like the TPP. We need congressional Democratic leadership, including House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, Rep. Steny Hoyer, and Sen. Chuck Schumer to take a vocal stand – both against the TPP and against a lame-duck vote. If they do, we have a chance to solidify the Democratic opposition and stop the TPP once and for all.

Thanks to hundreds of thousands of CREDO members, the tide is turning against the TPP. Both Sec. Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders opposed the trade deal during the Democratic presidential primary. Many Republicans now oppose it as well. But despite the pressure, President Obama is stubbornly continuing to push for a vote this year.

While Congress cannot amend or filibuster the TPP, they do have to vote yes or no on it. Already, some Republicans have come out against this awful deal, so if we are able to confront the big money interests behind this treaty with an onslaught of grassroots opposition, and convince the key members of congressional Democratic leadership to build a firewall, we can win.

We need to speak out now demanding that congressional Democratic Leaders publicly oppose both the TPP and any attempt at a lame-duck vote on it this fall. They can make a huge difference by opposing this attack on our economy, public health, legal system and environment – but it won't happen unless we demand it.
