  •  
    "Stiglitz about the trade deal. "The irony is that the president came out and said, 'This is about who makes the trade rules-China or the United States?'" Stiglitz said. "But I think the big issue is, this is about who makes the rules of trade-the American people, our democratic process, or the corporations? And who they're made for, which is, for the corporations or for all of us?""

    "from the time-to-get-it-right dept As we just mentioned, it looks like there aren't enough votes in Congress to give the President and the US Trade Rep the "fast track" authority they want to cram massive trade agreements down the throats of the American public.

Meanwhile, supporters of trade have put into motion an attempt to salvage fast track, which may lead to a vote as soon as tomorrow -- but seems like a risky gambit that may not succeed. "
