Statement: Trans-Pacific Partnership
"Wisconsin's working families see the Trans-Pacific Partnership for what it is, a raw deal written in secret for corporate interests at the expense of Wisconsin jobs."
MIDDLETON — Russ Feingold released the following statement on the news the United States reached agreement with Pacific Rim nations on the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a free trade agreement negotiated in secret set to damage the economic standing of Wisconsin families:
“Wisconsin’s working families see the Trans-Pacific Partnership for what it is, a raw deal written in secret for corporate interests at the expense of Wisconsin jobs. I wasn’t fooled by past trade agreements like NAFTA and I won’t be fooled by another job-killing agreement or Senator Johnson‘s fantasy that closing American manufacturing facilities is good for Wisconsin’s working families or our economy.”

Down in the polls, and short on time, Senator Johnson turns to desperate personal attacks
"Sen. Johnson would benefit from more time spent listening to Wisconsinites and less time engaging in hysterical partisan rants."
