The Trans-Pacific Partnership is a massive free trade agreement being negotiated in secret by the US and 11 other countries that, among many other things, would severely impact access to medicines in developing countries, undermine environmental regulations, decrease labor standards, and block internet freedom. The Administration is trying to submit the TPP for fast-track approval, which means that Congress cannot amend and bypasses important Congressional oversight. The negotiations have thus far been secret, so members of Congress and the public know nothing about the contents except for what has been leaked.
Nancy Pelosi, as House Minority Leader, is uniquely positioned to demand that President Obama make the TPP public and that Congress have the opportunity to consider and debate through the normal democratic process.
