3 thoughts on “Video Interview: Pol Says TPP Trade Deal Could Jeopardize NYC Laws

  1. The idea that we will have no opportunity to amend TPP, and that TPP will allow others to overturn our laws is just plain wrong. This is either pure ignorance or pure deception.

  2. Trade tribunals have ruled against the US on clove cigarettes, dolphin-safe tuna, internet gambling, and country-of-origin labeling, in some cases in multiple appeals. When we lose, US taxpayers can be obligated to pay investors damages for future anticipated profits.

    More challenges are absolutely predictable.

    So, we can keep our laws, at the price of paying off investors, or change the laws. Which do you think will happen?
