Currently, there are not enough Republican votes to pass fast track, but House Democrats are feeling the pressure from the White House to make up the difference.
Whether we win or lose on fast track now hinges on how many members of the House stand up for working people and say “no” to a secret corporate trade deal that you and I are not allowed to read.
Please take a few minutes to call your member of the House of Representatives today at the number below, and leave the following message:
“I am one of your constituents. I am urging you to stand up for working people and say NO to a secret corporate trade deal that will ship jobs overseas and endanger our environment. Please vote NO on fast-track approval for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement.”After you have made the call, please click here to report the call and give us feedback.
Can’t make a phone call? Please send your congressmember an e-mail by clicking here.
This vote will come down to the wire. Members of the House are under a lot of pressure from the White House to support this secret trade deal. We must remind them that they work for us, and must reject fast track.
