2. And damn labor, environmental, sovereignty issues!

These guys haven't laid out one single way the tpp and other trade agreements benefit American families. Not one.

It's fluffy nonsense. I read the whole article. Clueless Morgan's those mayors. No clue or plan. Read the trade agreements. They're fairly clear.

It's a race to the bottom with virtually no labor benefit. So some poor wage slave somewhere across the globe goes from $.10 a day to $.30 a day. That's good. But who are these mayors elected by? You think the American worker wants to hear that we've alleviated poverty in Vietnam but "you're fired".

IMO if you sell a product in a country you make that product in part or whole in that country. Ramp up yourself build your factory without taxpayer subsidies and go for it.

Everything else is corporate welfare.

And not only that.... Shipping these products globally has contributed to climate change.

Just stop. Enough bullshit.
