WASHINGTON (The Nil Admirari) - Earlier today, President Obama announced the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) - a massive multinational trade deal the president intends to sign - will protect the freedom of all Americans to not afford life-saving medicines. Instead, TPP will allow pharmaceutical companies to make more blood money by letting them keep longer patents on their drugs, and almost indefinitely prevent critical, far more affordable generic drugs from entering the American market.
"The American people will once again have the right to a lower standard of living, and the liberty to die as a result of TPP keeping affordable generic drugs for diseases like cancer off of the market. The freedom to die of treatable illnesses due to lack of money to pay for necessary drugs is American exceptionalism in action," explained President Obama.
Obama added, "Not only does TPP have the potential to bankrupt millions more American families like in the days prior to my signature healthcare law, but a flood of brand name drugs and no generic alternatives may also bankrupt programs like Medicare."

"Even Obamacare won't be able to save Americans, because the United States can probably be sued by pharmaceutical companies for the healthcare legislation placing barriers to making money by protecting the American consumer," said Obama.
"That's right, the United States can be sued and taken to a foreign tribunal run by corporate lawyers solely because American law limits the blood money corporations are allowed to extort from Americans," declared Obama.
"So, clearly the TPP is in the best interests of the United States and all Americans, and it will be signed by me very soon," promised Obama.
