Monsanto Protection Act backlash prompted some food activists to place the blame for the GMO legislation at Senator Barbara Mikulskis feet. Some of those opposed to allowing GMO ingredients in food products without labeling blame the Democrat for allowing the biotech rider to find its way into the new law.<quoted text>You're a liar. I believe that you don't even live in Missouri. "WASHINGTON -- Senate Republicans objected to an attempt Thursday to repeal a controversial provision, informally dubbed the "Monsanto Protection Act," that could allow seeds deemed unsafe to be planted regardless of judicial order.
The provision was quietly slipped into law earlier this year and generated a firestorm once its substance became known. During debate on the farm bill Thursday, Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.) offered an amendment that would have repealed the measure, but it was blocked by Senate Republicans, led by Roy Blunt (R-Mo.).
Earlier on Thursday, in an interview with The Huffington Post, Blunt said that the point of the provision was to protect farmers who had already purchased seeds that were later deemed unsafe."
The GMO seeds portion of the act was reportedly added to the bill last month. Senator Barbara Mikulski is the chair of the Senate Appropriations Committee. President Barack Obama signed the GMO biotech rider section of HR 933 into law. During a 2007 speech in Iowa, Obama stated that Americans have the right to know what goes into their food, a comment which some are now citing as a broken campaign promise.
YOUR liberal President signed--didn't he read it either? LOL-can he even read?
P.S. you don't have to live in a state to call their representatives--I call any representative-most of them however are democrats. You know it is better to call them, than to email them--most of the time the democrats hit delete on the emails. But they have to account for all calls.
