Is this an answer to my email about how the TPP negotiations will effect food labeling?

It answers nothing because Gillibrand supports GM food.
You have to read her bullshit form letter response.
I can not contact this fraud by phone. The line rings and turns busy.
Thank you for writing to me about the Trans Pacific Partnership trade agreement. I understand your concerns and am hopeful that with very clear objectives, we can reach a positive trade agreement.

In order to guarantee that our participation in the Trans Pacific Partnership yields positive negotiations for the United States, I have signed on to a letter sent to President Obama asking that U.S. trade representatives to the TPP maintain "Buy American" government procurement requirements from which government officials would not be prohibited from establishing government procurement policies that prioritize job creation in the United States. We also ask that U.S. trade representatives require strong Rules of Origin that ensures that only signers of the TPP will benefit from its increased market access so that employment opportunities in the U.S. may be expanded. Additionally, we ask for safeguards against investment and service sector rules that provide incentives for the off-shoring of both good manufacturing and service sector jobs. Lastly, we ask that trade negotiations include an enforceable obligation to protect fundamental labor rights and protections against currency manipulation.

With a goal of job growth and stability here in the United States without having to outsource, I am confident that we will be able to reach a favorable Trans Pacific Partnership agreement with partnering member countries. Thank you again for writing to express your concerns, and I hope that you keep in touch with my office regarding future legislation. For more information on this and other important issues, please visit my website at http://gillibrand.senate.gov and sign up for my e-newsletter.





Sincerely,
Kirsten E. Gillibrand

They can tell people just about anything because it's a secret deal.
"I've signed onto a letter"... My butt.
It's my guess she'll vote yes and blame the other guy for the negative components.
Typical politician.
What she should be doing is demanding that the content be made public.
Let us all see who's for and who's against what.

This is a link that Jeff Bridges posted.

The Bridges one?.. Yup, but under an alias.

Your link wouldn't load for me.
