Don't let Congress become a Eunuch protecting Monsanto's fiefdom.GMO Labeling Bill Voted Down In Senate
The people We pay to watch out for Our best interests decided - again - Thursday that it simply does not want to let the states tell the People whether or not We are eating genetically modified food.
The Senate voted overwhelmingly -- 71 to 27 -- against an amendment to the sweeping farm bill, squashing a measure that would not have required labeling of genetically modified organisms, but merely would have let states decide if they wanted to require such labeling.
Why don't you give them a call and let them know how happy you are about that:
"CREDO Action is joining forces with Senator Jeff Merkley (D. OR) in the fight to repeal the Monsanto Protection Act:"One of the most outrageous special interest provisions in years." That’s what Senator Jeff Merkley (D-OR) calls the Monsanto Protection Act, which became law in March.
Now we have an opportunity to stop it. Senator Merkley has proposed an amendment to the Senate Farm Bill that would repeal the Monsanto Protection Act – but it will take serious grassroots pressure to even make sure the amendment comes up for a vote.
