Congress Passes 'Monsanto Protection Act'

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


When the Senate passed a budget resolution Wednesday that appears to prevent some of the potential damage from sequestration, the Continuing Resolution included several food- and agriculture-related earmarks.
But one inclusion in particular is especially controversial. The “biotech rider” would require the USDA to approve the harvest and sale of crops from genetically modified seed even if a court has ruled the environmental studies on the crop were inadequate. This aspect of the bill infuriated many sustainable food and agriculture groups, who nicknamed the bill the “Monsanto Protection Act.”
If signed into law by President Obama, here’s what the rider would do: It will allow farmers to plant, harvest and sell genetically engineered plants even if the crops have been ruled upon unfavorably in court. A Center for Food Safety statement called the rider “an unprecedented attack on U.S. judicial review of agency actions” and “ a major violation of the separation of powers.”
Its up to you Mr. President to save agirculture in America…
…….shit.  -Mort

      Look, we all know that traitor Obama will sign it.

      Just like if Romney had won, that traitor would sign it.

      Americans are no longer able to vote for anyone BUT traitors. The system is rotten to the core.
