Yep this is a free trade act hidden from the public and House of Representatives so it can get passed so The Chinese can't lobby against it!

Sorry to say it's too late to take on The Chinese for America as already has been driven into a huge debt deficit with Them and they own us by now![:o)] It's a NWO deal for The West and it allies in The East.

Senators are forced to go into a classified viewing room in order to read the full text of the document, but are not allowed to bring in key staff or take notes on what is included in the bill text. Not only this, but as you would assume for classified documents, elected officials are unable to speak to anyone without proper security clearance about the specific details of the trade negotiations without suffering potential criminal legal ramifications. This becomes a serious issue when dealing with complicated and technical negotiations regarding the largest trade deal in American history. It also raises serious questions about the legislative process and democracy generally when the public is unable to view the content of a bill introduced in Congress, but foreign government officials and private corporations are.

Warren and Marchin have requested that the content of the bill revealed, which shouldn't be asking to much considering that former President Bush did the same thing with the Free Trade Area for the Americas (FTAA) in the early 2000's. Labor standards and enforcement of those standards should never be kept secret, especially during the negotiation phase.
