Congress Protects Monsanto, Not Third Graders

“Thanks to Monsanto’s aggressive lobbying, Congress hid a provision deep into a homeland security section of their recently passed budget, by way of a long-winded paragraph loaded with indecipherable legalese, allowing the agribusiness giant to plant genetically-modified (GM) crops without judicial review to determine whether or not their crops are unsafe. Essentially, Monsanto bought enough influence to bypass the system of checks and balances. All that’s needed to solidify this goodie to Monsanto is President Obama’s signature. Although Obama said in 2007 that he would “immediately” work to label GM foods if elected, Obama in 2012 appointed a Monsanto executive as his administration’s food safety czar. It’s safe to say the bill will get signed, paving the way for mutant food to hit the grocery store shelves without any obstacles.

Obama won’t pay attention to the petition with 100,000+ signatures from people representing all 50 states demanding to reject the Monsanto Protection Act, just as Congress didn’t pay attention to 3rd graders marching for gun regulations. This corrupt government will continue down this pay-for-play spiral until we all start throwing wads of cash at them, or organize as one unified group of people and oust them ourselves.”
