Tell the Super Committee to Say "NO!" to the Secret Farm Bill. ACTION

US Politics & Gov't  (tags: Sustainable Development, farming, consumers, jobs, americans, mega farms, Super Committee )

- 2495 days ago -
For weeks, the Ag Committees' leaders have been covertly writing the next federal farm bill, hoping to slip it into law through the top-secret Super Committee process. No hearings. No debate. Just billions in government handouts for corporate mega-farms.

Thanks for the information Nancy. When will this type of spending stop? The mega rancher and farmers do not need more than they already get from the government. And yet, they want to dismantle Medicare and other needed programs?

Puerto Rico is a territory of the USA but is not represented in the petition of Environmental Working Group. Guam & outlying minor islands either..!

Why is there a Super Committee in the first place? Just so Congress won't take any heat for calling the tough shots?

Thanks Nancy signed I am sick of the corruption in our government, Why all the secret bills in our government don't they work for us, And Lilith I think this is one time I agree with you why do we have a Super Committee anyway, Something about this just doesn't seem right to me, This is just like the stupid rider in the budget bill about the wolves.

My heritage from farm country leads me to speak out for those still struggling to maintain that precious lifestyle that serves the country so well. All too often their voices are drowned out by those bigger in industry!

Petition signed. My question is why these dumb heads; super committees, politicians, etc, have to always try and do things behind our backs. When will they ever understand, that lying/hiding facts, is something that always comes out and when it does they're the ones who suffer and pay for their sins. Thanks Nancy

Signed and sharing.. No more corporate handouts. Corporate welfare is taking the nation into the dumper. Mega- Corporations honor MONSANTO chemicals not God's nature safe.

Stop screwing with America's finances unless you opt to use these funds to create family farms, small business adventures, heal our infrastructure & create jobs.. The food stamp program needs a boost.

Are those on this bogus committee so dense you can't get it around your thinking why the Occupy Movement is growing? STOP SACRIFICING AMERICANS while you whore yourself to the self-serving mega-corps! ENOUGH!

There is a great show on NPR called Wait Wait don't Tell Me that airs on the weekend. It's a game show and they talk about all kinds of news. today they mentioned the Super Committee and how they got their name. they make fun of politicians a lot,especially republicans, but all pols in general. I get my laughs form listening to them and it makes having bad things happen a bit more bearable.

Signed with an attitude.
This is so shady on both sides of the fence, and in the barn as well if you count the recipients.
I hate monsanto, as well as the cattlemen in the states where they feel it is their god given right to slaughter our bison, wolves, bear, coyotes and any other animal that would dare trespass onto their (?!!!)
PUBLIC grazing lands..what a bunch of shady POS's!

Noted and signed, thank you, Nancy. I must admit I sounded off a bit and told them We the People will no longer tolerated back room deals, that we demand transparency and we are watching them. i also reminded them that they took an oath of office and we will hold them responsible for all they do.

Boy, it thats not balls. With all the public scrutiny, its a real testimony to their disconnect, lack of responsibility and outright contempt for America. Signed and so would a recall be signed - no hesitation.

The Super-Committee, was not for naught, for President Obama.
This is another mess the GOP got themselves into.
