Tucson TPP Protest
On Tuesday, January 12th the President will give his State of the Union address to the nation. Early reports suggest that he will urge Congress to pass the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal.
But the TPP is bad for older Americans and all consumers because it will lock in high prescription drug prices. The deal is large and complex and too few people realize the connection between prescription drugs and trade.
That’s why we need your help. We have to make sure that all members of Congress know that the TPP will hurt seniors who rely on prescription drugs and also cost American jobs.
We’re holding events in more than 20 cities on Tuesday before the State of the Union to draw attention to the dangers of the TPP.
