Hillary Clinton: Ask the White House to oppose a lame-duck vote in Congress on the TPP

Stopping the Trans-Pacific Partnership -- a deal negotiated in secret that gives corporations unprecedented power -- is one of the most important tasks we face in 2016.

But despite opposition from leading Democrats and progressives, the White House is pressing ahead. They are reportedly planning to hold a vote on the TPP in the "lame duck" session after the November election, when Congress doesn't have to face the consequences of their actions.

As the Democratic presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton is in a unique position to help us stop the TPP. Her campaign chair, John Podesta, said "Hillary opposes TPP BEFORE and AFTER the election." Now we need her to act -- and help stop Congress from passing the destructive, job-killing TPP.
