  1. Mike Spindell says:

    If this thing is ratified it will be stark proof that the corporate fascists rule us all.

  2. Here’s how much corporations paid US senators to fast-track the TPP bill

    From the article:

    Using data from the Federal Election Commission, this chart shows all donations that corporate members of the US Business Coalition for TPP made to US Senate campaigns between January and March 2015, when fast-tracking the TPP was being debated in the Senate:

    Out of the total $1,148,971 given, an average of $17,676.48 was donated to each of the 65 “yea” votes.
    The average Republican member received $19,673.28 from corporate TPP supporters.
    The average Democrat received $9,689.23 from those same donors.

    The amounts given rise dramatically when looking at how much each senator running for re-election received.

    “Madam, we’ve already established that. Now we are haggling about the price.” – Winston Churchill
    Apparently a sum was agreed upon.
