Sounds like US-Japanese trade deal is just warmed over TPP

Sounds like the US-Japanese trade deal is just warmed over TPP as far as agricultural trade is concerned.

I think it is a positive but not a game changer at this point.

TPA, TPP were deals written in secret by fatcats for the sole benefit of fatcats, yes you farmers might (or might not) get an extra nickel like the dog that gets his tail cut off and gets thrown the bone after someone else eats the meat...yet he`s happy he has a bone to chew on.  

True, honest liberals didn`t like the TPP, conservatives didn`t like it, albeit for other reasons.  It was a Trojan Horse that would put immigration on a fast track.  Among other things.  Going country by country is a much better deal than multi-lateral agreements for all peons involved.

The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) needs to be stopped and that will be tough.  The Republicans in Congress did a very stupid thing by passing TPA which virtually assures passage of TPP.  We are not engaging in a debate about free trade here because TPP is about a lot more than free trade.  The concern here has to do with the movement of labor which would be governed by TPP and not by our laws.

From a statement from former Senator (and now U.S. Attorney General) Jeff Sessions:

At bottom, this is not a mere trade agreement.  It bears the hallmarks of a nascent European Union.  It is another step towards a world where people, goods, and services can travel freely across international boundaries – and a world where those boundaries mean less and less every day.

How is that working out for Europe?!

No free trade benefits in the TPP outweigh the detrimental effects of the rest of the agreement.

It must be stopped along with any politicians who favor it.
