Wow!, I can't believe this happened.

In a dramatic turn of events on Friday, the House of Representatives narrowly voted to pass Fast Track trade authority, 219-211, thus opening the door for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and many other horrible trade "deals" down the road.

But there is a HUGE catch which means we can still stop Fast Track early next week, and defeat TPP once and for all.

Sign and send the petition to your member of the House of Representatives: Vote against TAA to stop Fast Track and protect American jobs.

Sign and send the petition: Stop the TPP once and for all

Just before the House voted to pass Fast Track, it overwhelmingly voted to defeat something called TAA (Trade Adjustment Assistance)—which funds "worker training" by cutting Medicare. The House needed to pass TAA in order for the bill to go to President Obama's desk, because TAA was in the Senate version of the bill.

Without TAA, the House and Senate have to come up with an entirely different bill, and then both re-vote on the whole thing again. What's more, the Senate probably can't pass Fast Track without TAA. They tried that last month, and failed.

Now, there will be another vote on TAA in the House this Tuesday. If we can defeat it again—and yesterday we crushed it 302-126—then Fast Track and TPP all go away and we win!

Sign and send the petition to you member of the House of Representatives: Vote to against TAA and stop Fast Track and TPP once and for all.

Keep fighting
