    It's funny how these people are supposed to be representing their voters yet at the same time are too busy taking back room deals and actively blocking the public they represent from seeing a treaty/law that will affect them. If you have to keep it secret so much so that you can't even tell people who has read the thing, it's a bad deal and you know it. Land of the free, not so much anymore... land of the corporation is more like it with deals like these. The real question is what happens if several of those nations, or even the whole of Europe do not adopt it, does that leave America and the few that do stuck with it? All you need to look at to see one of the bad affects of this is the recent WTO decision that the US Law about labeling food falls foul of the NAFTA agreement and that the US must repair or remove the law or face tariffs and penalties.

    Is it not strange who opposes this. Who has the best chance of defeating this. My guess is nobody will and it will pass.

      It depends if enough Democrats vote for the good of the people rather than their corporate masters. There aren't enough progressive Democrats to defeat it on their own.

        There are not enough good reps on either side....I hold no solace in the dems...they are no different. This will pass.

      It's a masks-off all the way around corrupstravanganza. Don't think I've ever seen such a starkly lit scene of quid pro quo, and I was around when Majority Leader Tom “The Hammer” Delay was passing checks out on the House floor ahead of a vote.
