TPP Unveiled

TPP REVEALED: Special bulletin from our colleagues on Pro Trade: The Obama administration has released the text of the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement. Read it here: http://1.usa.gov/1Pbxeru

The release sets the stage for a divisive fight in Congress next year that will once again pit Barack Obama against the labor movement and most of his fellow Democrats, reports Pro Trade’s Doug Palmer.

Approval of the landmark trade agreement between the United States, Japan and 10 other Asia-Pacific countries would rely heavily on votes from Republicans, in a replay of this year’s battle over trade promotion authority, which allows Obama to submit TPP to Congress for straight up-or-down votes without any amendments.
