The Most Revolutionary Act

By Vicki Needham for the Hill.

The Obama administration’s won’t pursue passage of its signature Pacific Rim trade deal, dealing a major blow to President Obama’s legacy. Any hope of passing the sweeping 12-nation Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) quickly faded after Donald Trump’s surprise victory on Tuesday and pronouncements by congressional leaders that the pact would not be considered during the lame-duck session.

We have worked to stop the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and other trade agreements for more than five years. We were part of the movement of movements, the largest coalition ever opposing a corporate trade agreement, that stopped it. People told us stopping the TPP was impossible. Even after the election of Trump people still told us we could not win. But, after years of work, the impossible became the inevitable and the TPP is dead. . .
