WHO'S GONNA CALL THE SHOTS?
(Hint: Probably not us )
The TPPA takes away our democratic right to decide our own laws and policies in ways that best serve the national interest. It was negotiated in secret and there has been zero public input into the draft text of the agreement.
TPPA will add an extra $2.7 billion to GDP by 2030
(That's a rise of 0.9% )
But hang on a minute, real GDP was already projected to increase by 47% without TPPA. So that's a 47.9% growth rate with TPPA or 47% without it.
Considering the trade-offs in that case, is TPPA really worth it?
It's not a healthy democracy if you can't understand it.
