    THE ACA in committee was kept from the public, and when it hit the floor, it was not given much debate time...which it why it is referred to as being "rammed down the throats of americans"

    so what i am saying is there in nothing new in that aspect of government wheeling and dealing.

    What's particularly wrong with the TPP? I'm trying to find good sources as to what it actually does but unfortunately most are partisan spin pieces.

    it isn't partisan at all. the majority of democrats oppose this bill while a majority of republicans support it.
    depending on the bill and the agreement I would vote against it as well.

    it was a vote against the bill not Obama, however Obama will take the flack since he supports this bill.
