Now she knows how I feel. In a statement posted to her campaign website, Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts laments that the Obama administration has kept secret the details of the Trans-Pacific Partnership—TPP for short—the decade-in-the-making free trade agreement between 12 Pacific Rim countries that will soon be put to a vote in Congress. “If the American people would be opposed to a trade agreement if they saw it,” she writes in bolded text, “then that agreement should not become law of the United States.”
Many liberals support Hillary Clinton because she’s not a Republican and wouldn’t it be awesome to have our first woman president and stuff. Other liberals have actual beliefs when it comes to politics, and aren’t convinced by Clinton’s campaign rationale: “I recently became a grandmother and I really want to be president.” Now that Hillary is actually running, some of these liberals are starting to troll her, which is kind of amusing to watch.
Liberals like Elizabeth Warren want Hillary Clinton—who is potentially just days away from announcing a second White House run (her first was a failure)—to take a position on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a free trade deal backed by the Obama administration.
Hillary Clinton does not care what liberals think. And who can blame her? Since quitting her job at the State Department, she has shown far less interest in promoting the causes liberals care about than she has in getting as rich as humanly possible.
Clinton has hobnobbed with Wall Street executives, given paid speeches hosted by foreign banks accused of fraud, charged public universities $300,000 to hear her speak, lifted her foundation’s ban on accepting donations from sketchy foreign governments—all things liberals would find outrageously offensive if done by Mitt Romney or the Koch brothers.
