Greetings citizens of the world,
What is the TPP? The average person has never heard of it, and most of those who have couldn't tell you what it is.
The TPP, or the Trans Pacific Partnership, is a trade deal that has been negotiated in secret for years now. A lot of people are going to be affected by this, but for some reason the public is not allowed to see what's in it. Many of the lawmakers which are about to vote on this deal haven't even read it themselves. Those who have read it are forbidden to expose what the deal contains.
Though the public doesn't have access to the full text of this deal, drafts of this deal have been leaked and make it obvious why this is being pushed through in such a covert way.
