Senate Bill 510 Delayed 'til November 29 -- The Capitol Needs to Hear From YOU!

We've been given the gift of delay for the final vote on the dangerous S510 bill ("Food Safety Modernization Act") that would expand FDA's power over our farms, seeds, farmer's markets, raw milk and greenhouses. As part of this debate over the safety of the food supply, Senator Mike Johanns is making a courageous attempt to kill the new, idiotic 1099 reporting requirement that would require every person running a small business in America to get 1099 forms from Best Buy, Wal-Mart, Costco, Amazon.com or any other retailer where they've spent over $600 in the previous year.

This absolute nightmare of 1099 paperwork was passed as part of the Obamacare health care
reform
legislation earlier this year (http://www.naturalnews.com/028854_1099_small_business.html). It will turn America's small business owners into paperwork pack rats and criminalize anyone who doesn't spent several hundred hours a year chasing 1099 forms from corporations that are almost certain to refuse to give them to you. This is the government's way of penalizing small business owners in America and killing off yet more jobs as a way to destroy the economy.

This 1099 recall is the only real positive thing being considered in the Food Safety and Modernization Act. And as you've probably noticed, it has nothing to do with
food.

LNH doesn't have a problem with making wise, sensible improvements in food safety, but giving the government control over seeds, backyard gardens and small organic farms is not an improvement, nor is it about 'food safety'.

As we now know, the problem with e.coli, salmonella and other
pathogens in the food supply is really a problem with factory animal farms -- notably cattle and chicken operations. That's where these pathogens come from (e.coli grows in the intestines of animals), so cleaning up factory animal farms is the answer to food safety, not invoking the FDA and its food irradiation agenda.

Why would anyone want to grant more power to the FDA when they've killed more Americans through corruption, fraud and negligence than any other organization in US history?

Your voice needs to be heard, and because the vote has been delayed until after the Thanksgiving recess, you have more time to oppose this dangerous legislation. Why wait? Call the Capitol Switchboard at 202.224.3121, and ask to be directly connected to your Senator's office:
