The Huffington Post is reporting that U.S. Senator Ron Wyden is "incensed" by the Obama Administration's lack of transparency in free trade negotiations with eight Pacific nations.  The leak of a critical document Wednesday reveals the administration intends to grant radical new political powers to multi-national corporations, which would contradict prior administration promises. Senator Wyden is so angry about the lack of transparency that he considered legislature to require disclosure.  Recently Senator Wyden talked with 1110 KBND News about his concerns over the secret trade negotiations. "I think the Obama Administration needs to be more open and accountable - especially in these trade negotiations." Wyden sits on the Senate Finance Subcommittee on International Trade, Customs and Global Competitiveness.   Wyden says in some cases corporations and special interest groups know more about the  trade negotiations than lawmakers do.
