The signing of the final agreement, a 2,400 page document

1) "Agreement" - not a treaty therby bypassing the Constitution's requirement for a 2/3's senate vote to ratify.

2) "2,400 page" - which means it ain't about free trade. That would take one paragraph.

Treaty language is embedded in the 2400 pages, which is the stealh method used to override constitutional protections. In fact many trade agreements sign on to implement UN rules, ILO labor regulations for example. Read the text for the Australia America FTA to see it.
