Not only has a huge amount of money been spent on lobbying for these "Free Trade Agreements" (that Obama and many Democrats ran against in 2008 but are now for), but also money is being spent to squelch the voice of the people who have protested against these FTAs. The "Tea Party" rallies originally started as non-partisan protests against these agreements as well as the big bank bailouts, and similarly you will find, if you dig deep enough, an anti-free trade and anti-bailout sentiment prevales in the current "Occupy Wall Street" movement. The "Tea Party" movement was usurped by muti-national corporations such as the Koch brothers and the long time friends of Communist China, the Libertarian Party. Let's hope the "Occupy Wall Street" protests are not similarly side tracked.
