Shrouded in secrecy, opposition to TPP mounts

Right now, a handful of people regularly meet to discuss an issue with huge ramifications for our nation, internally and worldwide. When it comes down to it, these people have more power to change our day-to-day lives than almost anyone else in the country. Corporate lobbyists have had privileged access to the negotiations throughout, with some estimating the involvement of around 6,000 US lobbyists. Hundreds of thousands of dollars have been spent since before negotiations even formally began by huge companies trying to ensure they got the best possible deal for maximising their profits.
