TPP appears to be ObamaCare for jobs and trade
The TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership Act) must be defeated--It appears to be ObamaCare for jobs and trade. At 5,544 pages (it reportedly has taken 6 years to write--but not written by your elected representatives), it contains more than three (3) times
the number of words as the Bible. Such a huge law takes months to read and is very difficult to summarize. However critics report one main theme--government by corporations, i.e. huge global corporations with headquarters in cosmopolitan centers like
NY and London. Placed on the new unconstitutional "fast track" voting procedure now used for such huge laws, only 20 hours of debate will be allowed. It is yet another fight for weary and perplexed Americans.
The troubles this law could bring an average middle class family is too long to list here, so I encourage you to "google" articles on TPP by various writers.

Oppose unfair trade deals that give away jobs overseas
Throughout our history, America's patriots have always put our country first. It's time we had that same patriotic spirit in our economy and our trade deals--so that American companies are encouraged to create jobs right here, rather than overseas.
Alma will oppose any unfair trade deals and will work to stop giving away high paying manufacturing jobs to foreign countries while our families here are struggling. Alma will always ensure American workers are given a fair chance to succeed.

ExportNC: public-private partnership to promote exports
Implement a New "ExportNC" Initiative: NC is ideally located to capitalize on expanding global markets. Our full potential is still untapped, though. As governor, Pat McCrory will establish "ExportNC," a public-private partnership that will provide
private financing and industry expertise to small- and medium-sized businesses, allowing them to increase exports by working with international businesses. With the private sector taking a leading role, "ExportNC" will coordinate efforts to promote
exports, free up capital for small businesses and stimulate growth and job creation in vital industries that "make and grow things," such as agribusiness and manufacturing.
Open New Markets for NC Products Through Trade Missions: As a part of his
effort to promote industries that build, grow & innovate, Pat McCrory will lead overseas trade missions to open new markets for NC products. Specifically, the McCrory administration will prioritize trade missions to India and countries in Southeast Asia.
