Letter: Elite, lawless status

Obama’s attempts to push through the highly secretive TPP reveal the entities for whom he really dances. This treaty, from the supposed “most transparent administration in history,” is so sensitive that no one is allowed to talk about it. If a quarter of what the rumor mill and exposed previous attempts at similar treaties is true, it would elevate certain corporations to an elite, exalted and lawless status. Remember the bankster bailout of the too big to fail? This is only the beginning of irresponsibility.

Courts have given corporations a near-human status with all the rights and privileges, yet no accountability, of the individual. Furthermore, the courts have stripped away our constitutional rights for international law and treaties. Tragically, all of the Utah delegation has voted for this abomination. Et tu, Chaffetz?
