While it is true that no one sensible, will fall for the scheme. We should ignore the fact that there will be those who are just plain stupid who will support any republican as a protest against Barack Obama's Presidency. Also a good portion of which will in effect vote against their own best interests and by doing so will by default fall for the scheme.

Until the bulk of the working class realizes that the corporatists are not on their side and "government" is not always evil, the GOP is going to be able to run with their agenda. The GOP's short term goal is to wreck the economy to defeat Obama, then, once they are back in total control of government, they can turn the clock back to 1900 and implement their complete agenda.

How much did "fast track" cost the corporate elite?

It cost corporations less than $18,000 bucks per vote to get “fast track” passed in the United States Senate.

According to a recent analysis by The Guardian Newspaper, corporate members of the US Business Coalition for TPP donated more than $1.1 million dollars to Senate campaigns in the first quarter of 2015. The average Democrat received about $9,700 dollars and the average Republican raked in almost $20,000.
