Remove everything from the TPP that promotes income inequality and promotes obscene advantages to multi-nationals 1


In my previous post Obama’s Aversion to Income Inequality Doesn’t Extend to TPP, I suggested that we tell President Obama what we think of the TPP.

At Whitehouse.gov I have created the following petition Remove everything from the TPP that promotes income inequality and promotes obscene advantages to multi-nationals. Click on the previous link or this one to sign the petition.

President Obama is promoting The Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) as a trade agreement. It has little to do with fair trade, but it has a lot to do with giving huge powers to multi-national companies to overturn any of our laws and regulations that they do not like.

If it weren’t for leaks from whistle-blowers we wouldn’t have any idea what the administration is insisting on putting into this agreement.

If President Obama didn’t already know the American public is dead set against these proposals, he wouldn’t be putting so much effort into keeping it secret.

This may be the last straw for many supporters of President Obama.

If we can just get 100,000 signatures by March 2, 2014 on this petition, he might listen.  To get those signatures, I will need your help to get the word out.

There is a short URL http://wh.gov/lRbAR and a long URL https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/remove-everything-tpp-promotes-income-inequality-and-promotes-obscene-advantages-multi-nationals/CpVfKtPq that will get you to the petition.  Pass along either of these URLs (links) when you tell your contacts about the petition.

If you need any help in signing the petition, see my previous post How To Sign a whitehouse.gov Petition.  Please let me know if you have any trouble signing the petition.

    The petition only needs 150 signatures for people to be able to search the Whitehouse.gov web site (https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petitions) and find the petition. Right now there are no searchable petitions on the web site that mention the TPP. Obama must think that everybody is fine with it, and the press is trying to make an issue of it. How is he going to know what we think if we don’t tell him?
