    And even then, because of the speed necessary, they (politicians) take advantage and add untold amounts of non-related items that would be questionable on their own.

    Well for one thing I oppose fast track because I oppose expanding the powers of the presidency.

    But this is also a big issue for me. Actually allowing corporate profits to have this much legal precedence is insane.

    Why isn't it good? From what I read it doesn't seem bad. But I very easily could be missing the obvious.
