Finally something the tea party and progressives can agree on

To all members of US Congress:

We call on you to exercise your constitutionally mandated democratic oversight over trade and investment, and to vote against any blank check Trade Promotion Authority (‘Fast Track’) bill.

Obama is about to announce his support for a bill called 'Fast Track' that aims to sidestep our democracy to push through a dangerous corporate trade deal. Together we can stop this Wall Street power grab, but we need to act this week, before our reps in Congress decide how they’re going to vote!

For years, Wall Street insiders have been working behind closed doors to draft a bunch of top secret, pro-corporate trade deals. President Obama's worried that when the details of the deals are made public there will be massive opposition -- so now he’s pushing Congress to grant him the 'Fast Track' authority to sign in secret and only then could Congress vote yes or no. Members of the Tea Party and some progressive Democrats are fighting back against this un-democratic deal, but key opponents are wavering, and it’s up to us to give lawmakers the support they need to stand strong.

Send an urgent message to House Minority Leader Pelosi and Majority Leader Boehner now! Once 100,000 of us sign, Avaaz will deliver the petition to every last member of Congress, print op-eds in major papers, and take-out ads targeting key sell-outs in their home districts.
