A new chain email warns that President Barack Obama is about to grab “the powers of a king” through a new trade agreement with Pacific Rim countries.

Greg Russak‘s insight:

This is not to say that we have nothing to worry about when it comes to the TPP. I still oppose it. I’m glad to have seen this PolitiFact piece and to have a better understanding of how the "fast track" process would work if it was in place. It is not currently, and I didn’t know that.
