FTT "Free Trade" Deal

Jim Crannell is strongly opposed to the TPP "Free Trade" agreement that is now being debated in Congress, and brought several article printouts to the June 17, 2015 meeting of the Muskingum County Democrats Club.  He has been researching this issue, and shared with the club some articles. He urged us all to ask our representatives to block this deal.
