AZ-Sen: Ann Kirkpatrick (D) Fights Back Against Fast Tracking The TPP

Received this e-mail today from Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick's (D. AZ) U.S. Senate campaign:
Congress is about to make a big decision on trade policy.

Right now, Congress is debating “fast track” for the massive Trans-Pacific Partnership free trade agreement. This could severely limit Congress’ ability to substantively amend the final agreement to ensure it protects American small businesses and workers.

I oppose fast track because American workers need to be protected. Today, I’d like you to add your voice to mine. Sign the petition to oppose fast track for free trade agreements.

Free trade can be a good thing. But free trade done in secret can lead to serious problems -- including offshoring of American jobs, an uneven playing field for American business, and the erosion of labor, environmental, and safety standards.

American workers depend on us to make sure they are protected in free trade agreements. We cannot allow that power to be taken away through fast track authority.

Oppose fast track for the TPP. Sign the petition.

Arizona families should come first -- especially in trade negotiations that affect our jobs and economy.

Thank you for your support today.
