From A Woman's Point of View Dec 05 2013 12:00AM Add to Calendar

MARGARET FLOWERS, MD. The Trans-Pacific Partnership is truly rolling down the track. What do you know about it? Don't feel bad if you don't - the total lack of transparency is one of the problems. But the limited information that has "sneaked out" - of the 26 sections, only 5 have to do with trade! Referred to as "NAFTA on steroids, Lori Wallach of Public Citizen's Global Trade Watch wrote in the New York Times, "Ron Kirk, until recently Mr. Obama's top trade official, was remarkably candid about why he opposed making the text public: "Doing so, he suggested to Reuters, would raise such opposition that it could make the deal impossible to sign." Yet President Obama wants permission for a "Fast Track" approval. Margaret Flowers (Pediatrician, advocate for single payer and Co-host Clearing the FOG Radio) will update us. Talk about "the Grinch who stole Christmas!"
