Senators write to the President on the TPP

Senators write to the President on the TPP. Their letter is in this article (at the end). Of foremost concern is the clause on Investor State Dispute Settlement (ISDS), which gives corporations the power to sue governments if the latter have laws interfering with their profits AND it’s adjudicated by their corporate peers. Yes, that includes health and safety laws. So the Senators, including Sanders and Warren, want that provision struck from the TPP. The Senators had other complaints with the TPP, also listed in their letter.
