NEW ACTION ITEMTHE US SENTATE JUST VOTED TO END FOOD FREEDOM IN THE UNITED STATES.THE ACTION NOW MOVES TO THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
The Natural Solutions Foundation has developed A NEW ACTION ITEM TELLING THE HOUSE NOT TO ACCEPT THE SENATE BILL S.510. The NY Times just reported the "lame-duck leadership" in the House will attempt quick passage!"Despite unusual bipartisan support on Capitol Hill and a strong push from the Obama administration, though, the bill could still die, because there might not be enough time left in the session for the usual haggling between the Senate and House of Representatives, which passed its own version of the bill last year. Top House Democrats have said that they would consider simply passing the Senate version to speed approval."Action Item: http://salsa.democracyinaction.org/o/568/p/dia/action/public/?action_KEY=5270Last night Sen Coburn said the bill will raise food prices; add 1.5 billion to deficit; add unfunded state mandates. It will not increase food safety one bit(e).
The ad hoc coalition against S.510 of health and food freedom advocates (such as Health FreedomUSA and Citizens for Health), garden, farm and ranch groups, both major Tea Party groups, the Oath Keepers, Downsize DC, Campaign for Liberty and others will not be fooled and we will remember! Below is a list of Senators who voted for cloture and who are up for re-election in 2012. Save this list!http://www.senate.gov/legislative/LIS/roll_call_lists/roll_call_vote_cfm.cfm?congress=111&session=2&vote=00257We the People will continue to oppose S.510 on the House floor and in the House/Senate Conference -- if needed, will petition the current White House occupant to veto it. If he fails to do so, we will support defunding it in the new Congress!
