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 freedoms of all Americans to earn lower wages and become unemployed. President Obama explained the two innately-American liberties would be protected by the TPP, which will make it even easier for corporations to offshore American jobs to countries with lower wages.
"The Trans-Pacific Partnership will protect the traditional American liberties to earn less money for the same amount of labor, or maybe even more labor, and become unemployed due to no fault of your own," declared President Obama, who conceded the disappearing American middle class "would be lucky to survive the TPP."
Obama added, "TPP gives corporations even more incentives to outsource American jobs to countries that pay their workers far less money than what people are compensated for their labor in the United States."
"So, naturally, that will mean America will simply be exporting more jobs overseas while wages decrease and income inequality becomes even worse," stated Obama.
President Obama initially shrugged when a member of the press asked him how the Trans-Pacific Partnership will benefit Americans.
"Some goods will probably be cheaper, which will probably help Americans who lost their jobs due to TPP," replied Obama.
