...the ridiculously secret nature of the whole thing

Indeed. The rumour that one aspect is not quite as bad as previously rumoured really doesn't help that much.

http://www.newyorker.com/news/daily-comment/why-does-obama-want-the-trans-pacific-partnership-so-badly is really good reading on this. If as rumoured it contains investor-state dispute settlement provisions (companies can sue governments over hypothetically lost profits) it will be truly awful for consumers.
