    Passage depends on Fast-Track Authority. The original law has expired, and needs to be renewed. Our great Democratic ally, Orrin Hatch, has sponsored a Fast-Track Bill.

    This would let the Agreement be debated in secret in Congress, and forbid amendments.

    So that has to be stopped first. Of course, like most other things which end up as laws, Americans won't hear about TPPA until it's entirely too late.

    The Administration hopes to get this passed by Autumn, I guess in time to enrage all Americans, and under color of the Democratic Party, in time for the 2014 Election.

    Along with the offering of c-CPI, which if it can't get done this year will surely be offered during budget and debt-limit 'crises' next year, the only sad thing is we'll not likely have Drones being seen by the voters over their heads in time for 2014. That would help a lot during the election, too. Oh, well we'll have that for 2016.


    Actual Democrats is the surest, quickest. route to More Democrats
