Leaders are as leaders do.

At Public Citizen's annual party, Sen Warren made remarks about trade bills, and the attitude of people in Congress.

It's a very short piece so it would be hard to quote it within copyright rules.

After referring, by industry name, to these leaches that plague us, she says how they are 'salivating at the chance to rig' the Trade Agreements. ("No one could have foreseen" we'll being hearing down the road someday.)

How she's been told by people on Capitol Hill that

‘[The Trade Agreements] have to be secret, because if the American people knew what was actually in them, they would be opposed.’”

The article concludes with her opinion that if the people of this country are opposed to a trade agreement, then that's end of story, don't make it Law.

Again, it's a very short piece, but it is packed with a lot more than I'd directly quote. Here's the link again

She sounds like some kind of radical to me. And I feel fine.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
