May 28, 2015

CREDO Action Vice President and Political Director, Becky Bond explains the broad outsider push for reclaiming our civil liberties and allowing sections of the Patriot Act to sunset. The fake reform bill that has moved through the House. Why the politics of the Patriot Act is fluid and why civil liberties can still win. The broader loss of American civil liberties over the last fifteen years. Credo Action’s fight against the Medicare cuts that would help fund the TPP. Has the Medicare provision made it even more difficult for Democrats to back Fast Track and TPP.

Wisconsin Congressman, Mark Pocan, explains what his biggest with the Patriot Act are. The corporate giveaways and the undermined standards for labor and the environment. The stunning secrecy of the TPP document. The failure of labor standards to end the murders of labor organizers in Columbia. How TPP undermines regulation and threatens American sovereignty. How passing TPP could lead to Medicare cuts and what the state of play is on Fast Track Authority and TPP.
