    Unhappy Republicans want to ditch food safety labels

    Why?

    Because they give too much helpful information to consumers? It's clear that the GOP is in debt to the mega food producers but wiping out consumer protection notices is flaunting it. Tough shit if a candy maker doesn't like to tell consumers that its product has lead content in it. Who's side is congress on here? The GOP loves to talk about self regulation and the laws that are already there but when self regulation means no regulation and the laws and enforcement capabilities have been picked to the bone, none of that really means anything anymore.

    With food safety issues like mad cow, salmonella and others out there and consumers receiving so little information (due to self regulation) this proposed law is about as anti-consumer as they come.

    Why does the GOP hate American consumers?

    They are trying to turn back the clock to a time when the robber barons ruled. Wait...that time IS now.

    It is now. It's to their benefit alone if people stay stupid, fat and poisoned because they don't have access to information..

    The government here is in the pocket of the beef, dairy, and corn industries. Marion Nestle has a lot of great books about how government agriculture officials often "retire" into cushy private sector jobs and how top beef industry people often go into government. They've stonewalled basic anti-contamination (HACCIP) measures, leading to the deaths of people by E. coli infection. They've halted measures to have more humane conditons for animals. And they've allowed a ton of genetically engineered products into America's food system without the population's knowledge, and without validating food safety. Between that and the government/Monsanto collaboration to kill everyone with brain tumors via NutraSweet... I don't know... Maybe they're planning to reduce America's debt by killing us all off early?
