Letter: Give voters the details of secret trade accords

Give voters the details of secret trade accords

More big words. The United States, Canada and the European Union are negotiating the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). President Obama and German Chancellor Angela Merkel are asking us all to accept it. Like the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), it is being negotiated in secret. The few elected representatives who have been allowed to see it, but not report on it, are able to report that they do not like it. When can our overlords give us, citizens and voters, the full, official text to cuss and discuss, approve or disapprove?
