Sanders urges Democrats to oppose the Trans-Pacific Trade deal. Is the TPT bad for the U.S. economy?

  • Yes, it is bad.

    The Trans-Pacific Trade deal is bad for the U.S. , because it will encourage American companies to set up factories and hire workers from other countries where the minimum wage is lower, and taxes are lower. Like all similar deals this will have a negative effect on the U.S. economy

  • The Trans-Pacific Trade deal has negative ramifications for the U.S. economy

    The Trans-Pacific Trade deal, because it throws U.S. workers into competition with cheaper foreign labor, lowers U.S. workers wages unfairly, and lowers the standard of living in the U.S. Naom Chomsky states that the TPP is "designed to carry forward the neoliberal project to maximize profit and domination, and to set the working people in the world in competition with one another so as to lower wages to increase insecurity."

  • Yes, the Trans-Pacific Trade deal is a bad deal.

    Yes, the Trans-Pacific Trade deal is bad for the U.S. economy. It will take away American jobs which will hurt our economy. Any benefit that this agreement could hold is far outweighed with the loss of jobs. The Trans-Pacific Trade agreement makes it sound like it will be helpful with the reduction of tariffs, but that can flood our markets with cheaper goods. That would hurt our economy even more. It will be beneficial for some countries, just not the United States.

  • No it's not bad for the economy

    Any deal that will increase trade is a good thing for the United States economy. The United States is in so much debt they need to make money in any way they can. Sanders is not right when he urges Democrats to oppose the Trans-Pacific Trade deal. We need to boost the economy.
