What would you do for $ 873,540.00

Monsanto Wins 1st Senate Vote on Roberts-Stabenow DARK Act!

On July 29, Monsanto scored a preliminary victory, winning a Senate “test vote” on a bill known as the DARK Act that Senate Agriculture Committee Chair Pat Roberts (R-Kansas) and Ranking Member Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.) introduced to Deny Americans the Right to Know about GMOs.
$ 873,540.00 is how much Senator Nelson D-FL got from agribusiness. He voted YES to effectively stop us from knowing what foods are genetically modified (GMO).

The Roberts-Stabenow GMO labeling bill would kill the Vermont law that labels GMO foods as “produced with genetic engineering.” Vermont's law is working. GMOs are being labeled. Food prices are staying the same. The labels are being used nationwide. 
The Roberts-Stabenow bill wouldn't require words on the package. It exempts nearly all GMOs from labeling. It would take at least 2 years to take effect. And, it’s essentially voluntary because there would be no enforcement for non-compliance.”

Read up on it and Google, there is no excuse for a 'yes' vote, to hide choice, to hurt us and future generations.
