  1. Thank you for sharing this graphic, Darlene. It shows how corporate money is determining what laws get passed. They are able to funnel dollars to candidates, making elected officials reluctant to vote against what these firms want. 71 U.S. Senators voted to preempt state laws for GMO labeling. These corporations and those who profit from them seek to take funds and authority away from government agencies that have the duty to protect public health, and the environment. It’s not a pretty picture for the future of democracy. It is an uphill battle to provide food security for Americans when those who piece together and vote on a new Farm Bill cater to industrialized agriculture and the petrochemical industry giants, referring to fruits and vegetables as “specialty crops,” cutting food assistance for those in poverty, imposing unreasonable burdens on small farmers, and taking away incentives for best conservation practices.
