AMSA On Call

Go Back

Vote NO on Fast Track

This moment could not be more important. Our years of work against the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) are boiling down to this moment.

Hours ago, U.S. Representative Dave Camp and Senator Max Baucus introduced a bill for Congress to grant President Barack Obama Fast Track trade authority. If Congress approves this bill, it will give away its constitutional authority to protect us from the numerous threats posed by the TPP.  

Write now and demand that your representative commit to you in writing to vote “no” on Fast Track.

If the Fast Track bill passes, the TPP could be signed before Congress votes on it. Then the deal could be rushed through Congress with no amendments and limited debate. Fast Track trade authority is how Clinton and Bush passed the WTO, NAFTA, CAFTA and other disastrous “trade” deals.

The TPP would empower foreign corporations to sue governments in international tribunals if a country implements environmental, public health or other public interests policies that undermine corporations’ “expected future profits.” It would create new incentives to offshore more American jobs.
