Monsanto Protection Act passed

97 posts in this topic

The US House of Representatives quietly passed a last-minute addition to the Agricultural Appropriations Bill for 2013 last week - including a provision protecting genetically modified seeds from litigation in the face of health risks.

'Monsanto Protection Act' slips silently through US Congress

Hope the president veto's this.

Seem's to me they know, or have a good idea that genetically modified seeds have a health risk to them, why else would they pass such a thing

Well that's just peachy.

Sadly, it's not surprising in the slightest. Obama won't veto it because he road to the Whitehouse on the Monsanto Buck.

I'd put my last dollar on the bet.

Big business gets their moneys worth again.

As the Washington Times points out, the provision’s success is viewed by many as a victory by companies like Syngenta Corp, Cargill, Monsanto and affiliated PACs that have donated $7.5 million to members of Congress since 2009, and $372,000 to members of the Senate Appropriations Committee.

Monsanto is not The Good Guys. They are just the guys with the money.

Don Rumsfeld headed it up for a while too.

Blows my mind that anybody can call Obama a socialist when he is so clearly a corporate suck up. There's no way he'll veto this.

There are moves to introduce bills at state level compelling GMO labelleling. The one is California was narrowly defeated but there are new ones in Washington state and other states. If its passes in any state it will compell the food companies to label GMO on a national level.

Hope at least one state legislature has the guts to do the right thing.

I agree that Obama is a Monsanto stooge and there is no way he will veto this.

There's a lot of Monsanto stooges up there if they are taking their money. Companies don't give you money then don't expect payback. I don't think companies should be allowed to do this. Things need to change so our politicians aren't indebted to them.

In California GMO labeling Bill Monsanto spent 14million to defeat it. Opposition only raised 4million. It passed 54% to 46%. That was a decent blow to GMO labeling for other states. Oregon has one currently in the legislative body as well. But it is getting -0- attention.

Would an 0bama supporter please explain to me how you could still support this man? Please explain to me how this isnt down right treason against the people? Or will you just close your eyes to this, and keep chanting hope and change?

Ah, what a little campaign aid (already given and promised for the future) does.... What is much more shocking with this news: If they insists on having this legislation it is because they are aware of potential harm... else they would divide the money among their shareholders and pass out a few bonuses.

I did not know that Obama held a majority in Congress, how did that happen?

I think most people voted for Obama because Romney was the other choice.

Weird... I voted.

But not for either of those ass-clowns.
