|TPP is BAD!!
In late May, Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR), chair of the Senate Finance Subcommittee on International Trade, introduced new legislation that would require the White House to share trade documents with all members of Congress and their qualified staff. The move was largely a symbolic act of protest against the secrecy the White House has imposed on a new trade deal, known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership.
The agency responsible for trade negotiations -- the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative -- had denied Wyden office access to any of the draft documents involved
The general public and most nonprofit organizations have no access to the documents, although a number of corporate officials can see them.
