Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-Kan.), the Congressman from Koch Industries, has introduced a federal bill to keep labels off GMO-contaminated foods, and allow the use of the word “natural” on foods that contain GMOs (genetically modified organisms). It’s called the “Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act of 2014." Of course, it’s anything but.
How much did it cost the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) and Monsanto to buy a congressman from Kansas? About $170,000, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.
Pompeo’s sponsorship of the GMA’s bill reflects everything that’s wrong with today’s political system. Elected by Kansans to represent their best interests, Pompeo is ready to sell out the people of Kansas to companies such as Coca-Cola, Monsanto and Koch Industries.
