Letter: Worsening inequity

All the secrecy surrounding the TPP “free” trade pact should arouse our collective suspicions.

The fact that the inept Obama and establishment Republicans are in cahoots in this sneaky endeavor should strike fear into the hearts of all U.S. citizen workers.

While saying that U.S. job loss is unwarranted speculation, our leaders have already appropriated millions of tax dollars to retrain workers whose jobs “won’t” be lost. As usual, It’s the American worker who takes it in the shorts. Our leaders talk about income inequality while negotiating policies that further that inequality. From Obama’s virtual amnesty policies on illegal aliens and free trade pacts like NAFTA and the proposed TPP to the naive, open-border, globally conscious humanists; all transpire to degrade the U.S. worker and widen the chasm of income inequality.
