As taxpayers, we pay twice--once to subsidize junk food and again to pay for the costs of diet-related diseases like stroke and heart failure. It's time to put an end to this fiscal boondoggle.

Oh Kit, you poor thing. At least you don't have Louie Gohmert. That would be a real trio of anencephalics.

I, at least, have a great Senator, Dick Durbin, the only non disgusting piece of feces Republican Senator outside of Maine and one of the finest Representatives in Congress, Luis Gutierrez. Even Mark Kirk has a functional brain, mostly wrong, but at odds with his party on lots of things that affect the common folks.

Signed * Our Congressman Jim Jordan says "As you know GM crops are often engineered to produce higher yields with less Labor Input and with reduced need for pesticides crops thrive in less than ideal growing conditions continue to help combat hunger in the developing world. I do understand the concerns expressed y many consumer's about foods derived from the crops, we cannot impede innovation and lifesaving research, people must be able to trust that the food they buy is safe to eat. The Dept of agriculture and the food and drug administration are responsible for using sound science to determine if certain foods pose a problem to Public Health. Once consumer's are aware of the Benefits and Detriments of a food product, they are free to decide what they choose to buy based on Quality and Affordability. Protecting our food supplies is clearly a National Security Issue. I favor all Fact Based efforts that will help keep these supplies safest in the world as Congress Considers Food & Farm Policy in the current Session. I will keep your thoughts in Mind."
Thank You Carrie
