Why should US taxpayers pick up the tab for these required USDA meat inspectors when we've had to cut USDA meat inspectors for conventional meats Plus with today's corrupt trade negotiations, you know that meat will make reentry into the US tainting our food supply as it has in Europe. Much horsemeat is toxic...those horses are shot up with drugs.

I hope I don't have to eat my words, but this abomination can never happen. I am going to keep saying it until once and for all, legislation is passed to put an absolute end to the notion of slaughtering horses for consumption or transporting them for slaughter. There is no other option, and I have to believe there are enough powerful Americans that will fight for this. I know it.

Good! I love horses and hate seeing them killed so people can eat them. It's barbaric.
