Big business wins and democracy loses as both parties lie about free trade.

[Salon] If you need further proof of your democracy’s ill health, the Senate provided plenty of it this week as it began debating whether to fast track President Obama’s much-beloved Trans Pacific Trade Partnership (TPP).

Debate will extend into the coming week — but make no mistake, in the Senate, the fix is in.
