    “To push for additional TPP lobby efforts”. This must be the part where the lobbiest come in to each congressional voter and offer-bribe with money or special favors for their vote. I read somewhere that for the countries and corporations to make a simple $200M bribe-offer to all congressmen comes to about $2M per vote investment.That is a huge return on investment-bribe for those countries-companies for that small “investment”-bribe. Why do we allow this to happen when our own leaders can be easily bribed to sell out the American people? Do our leaders have no conscious or moral compass? Do they not read the Josh Bivens globalization report on wealth inequality increasing fast?
