Stop Fast Track On TPP Vote In Congress - Friday, July 12 2015 - Don't Say Goodbye To Your Liberty

US Followers & Canadians who wants to help out, this will affect us all: RED ALERT: STOP FAST TRACK, STOP THE TPP. TAKE ACTION NOW. Ways & Means Chair Paul Ryan (R-WI) is pushing to bring his toxic Fast Track legislation for a vote in the House this Friday. Obama and Team GOP are releasing propaganda saying they have the votes to push this legislation through. Don't believe them. 60K people called Congress on the Thurs. national call in day and members of Congress are listening. The phones are still constantly ringing, and they are impressed by the amount of calls coming into their offices. We can still stop Fast Track. Even if you have already done so, please call your representative now and tell them to vote NO on Fast Track, or else they can kiss their Congressional jobs goodbye next election:

We especially need to put the pressure on Nancy Pelosi, Steny Hoyer, Kathleen Rice, Ed Perlmutter and Seth Moulton. If you are represented by them, call & email and tell them NO on Fast Track:
Nancy Pelosi (CA-12)
Tel: 202-225-4965
Steny Hoyer (MD-05)
Tel: 202-225-4131
Kathleen Rice (NY-04)
Tel: 202-225-5516
Ed Perlmutter (CO-07)
Tel: 202-225-2645
Seth Moulton (MA-06)
Tel: 202-225-8020
Representative Ryan’s Fast Track bill (formally known as Trade Promotion Authority - TPA) has already passed in the Senate, and if approved by the House, would allow secretive trade deals like the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) to be rushed through Congress, circumventing ordinary review, amendment and debate procedures. Despite being under negotiation for years now, the American public has been barred from reviewing what TPP negotiators have been proposing in our names. Meanwhile, hundreds of corporate lobbyists - representing companies like Monsanto, Cargill and Walmart - have had special “cleared advisor” status which provides them with privileged access to the TPP texts and TPP negotiators. Providing a Fast Track rubber stamp to back-room trade deals sight unseen is NOT the way to make sound public policy in a democracy. It may pad the profits of well-connected transnational corporations, but only at the expense of the economy, the environment and public health at home and abroad.
Together, we can stop Fast Track. TAKE ACTION NOW: please call your Congressperson and demand that they vote NO on Fast Track:
