TPP: The Worst Trade Deal You've Never Heard Of!

Republicans in Congress want to work with the Obama administration to fast-track the passage of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).  

The TPP is the largest - and worst - trade deal you've never heard of, having been devised in secret by representatives of some of the world's largest corporations.  It's so big and has the potential to do so much damage, it's been likened to "NAFTA on steroids."  Watch this short video to see what I mean: 

Will you help spread the word about fast track and the TPP by watching and sharing the video right now?

Thanks for all you do.

Robert Reich

P.S. Once you've watched the video, please join the growing chorus of Americans who are saying no to fast track and the TPP by adding your name to this petition from Larry Cohen, president of the Communication Workers of America.

Legacy Qwest Retiree Health Care (R-07)

We have been informed by CenturyLink that under the terms of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) any company that employs 50 or more people is required to provide "affordable" healthcare. The law also requires that Company’s using contractors that employ 50 or more require the contractor to provide healthcare, otherwise the company utilizing the contractor could become liable to do so. We understand that CenturyLink took steps last year to renegotiate all contracts with their U.S.  Vendors and Contractors to require them to provide affordable health care to their employees who perform work for CenturyLink business.  They did not renew their contracts with and will not use contractors who will not provide ACA-complaint health care to their employees.
