The pending trade agreements

Dan Froomkin has a good rundown of where things stand on the Korea, Colombia and Panama trade deals ("Free Trade Deals: Lobbying Fever Foreshadows Winners, Losers.") Some small domestic manufacturers are lobbying against it (small business!), but don't have much clout compared to the multinationals. And though dozens of tea party types in congress had campaigned against such trade agreements, most of them have now been whipped into line.
