Statement of California Democratic Party Chairman John Burton on Congress' Fast-Track Proposal for the Trans-Pacific Partnership

Congress is considering a “fast track” bill for the proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement that would continue the trend of offshoring American jobs and driving down wages. 

History tells us that every time we fast-track a trade bill, millions of Americans lose their jobs and foreign corporations profit. Trade agreements should be openly debated in Congress not pushed through in an up or down vote. 

Congress should reject this anti-democratic legislation.
