Comment: Not just this amendment, but this whole bill is bad!

Not just this amendment, but this whole bill is bad!

As if subsidizing Monsanto thru this bill were not enough! That is what has happened with past "Farm Bills" The Government subidizes the farmers, mainly big farms that use GMO's and roundup (patented by Monsatan, er uh I mean Monsanto)
I will bet that Dr Paul will vote NO on this bill with or without the amendment.
The sad thing is that groups like Food Democracy Now will cheerlead this if the ammnendment fails (even though I also want it to) just like they did with the "Food Safety Bill" after the Tester ammendment was passed, even though it call for additional hiring of FDA agents to harass small farmers.
I am a farmer and I would rather forgo the subsidizing and let the free market drive the price. This is one reason Organic food is more expensive, convenstional (chemical GMO) food is artifically cheap because of bills like this.
