Tell Congress No More Unfair Trade-Pact Handouts for Bailed Out Banks

Staff at Public Citizen's Global Trade Watch division recently wondered just how easy it was to set up a corporation in Panama to dodge taxes. In fact, it seemed so simple, we asked Global Trade Watch's star intern Jessica to give it a try. Jessica, a college sophomore, sprung into action last week seeking to answer one question: how hard is it to set up a tax-dodging corporation in Panama? Check out the results in this video and take action below!

(Can't believe it could really be that easy? Find out yourself: we called Intertrust Panama at 011-507-263-6300.)

Despite millions of Americans being angry at bank bailouts and bailout fraud, some administration officials are pushing to give more unfair trade-pact handouts to bailed-out banks as "expeditiously as possible." It is unthinkable that Congress would approve a leftover Bush NAFTA deal with Panama - a nation notorious for helping corporations escape paying their fair share, as we can see in the video above.

TAKE ACTION: Use the form below to tell your members of Congress that you are outraged that some administration officials would even consider moving Bush's FTA with tax haven Panama. Remind them of President Obama's commitments to renegotiate NAFTA, create a new American trade model that actually benefits us and close the tax loopholes that promote job offshoring. The form will send your e-mail to both of your senators as well as your House representative.
