The Resurrection Of TTIP ???

Federal Chancellor Merkel and US Trade Minister Ross have spoken out for the resumption of the TTIP negotiations.

You can read the rest @ [translation required]

Should TTIP be resurrected, don't expect it to be a godsend for the US economy. The powers that be still have Trump on the ropes, and I doubt that any renegotiated agreement will be any better than the last one.

Whatever the case, the BEST thing that could come out of this is to designate TTIP as a TREATY (which it is) so that the bar for passage would be raised in the Senate. If that doesn't happen, we might as well bend over and kiss our asses goodbye.
