Dear Friend of Liberty,
A critical cloture vote is scheduled for this Wednesday on S. 510, the so-called “Food Safety Modernization Act,” which will open the floodgates for tyrannical federal bureaucrats to crush local producers of healthy food.
Click here to contact Senator Hatch and tell him to oppose S. 510! Also, call him directly at (202) 224-5251.
The statists in the Senate are banking on us not paying attention after the elections in order to ram another disgusting bill down our throats.
In these tough economic times, S. 510 will drive up the costs of food production by adding more layers of government interference. Like Cap and Tax, which will guarantee higher energy bills, S. 510 will ensure you pay more to meet an essential need.
We know Congress won’t be the one tightening its belt: Section 401 of S. 510 authorizes nearly $1 billion to grow the government’s reach and calls for over 17,000 new bureaucrats to be hired through fiscal year 2014 (just for starters).
The bill also grants blanket authority for federal agencies to impose international guidelines and standards on domestic food producers – giving agencies authority to harmonize all American food production and processes in line with the globalist Codex.
Well-intentioned amendments to this rotten bill are not enough to make it anything other than unconstitutional.
Don’t let the statists empower their Big Agriculture allies and destroy reputable food producers like the independent family farm, where the free market works every day to provide the public with healthy choices.
Click here to contact Senator Hatch! Also, call him directly at (202) 224-5251. Tell him to oppose S. 510 on every vote – including cloture.
John Tate, President
P.S. The cloture vote is scheduled for this Wednesday. Urge Senator Hatch to follow Senator Tom Coburn’s lead and oppose the bill.
