The Farm Bill

A Green farm bill would make sure that all American citizens were well fed, farmers received just compensation, animals are treated humanely, and our topsoil and water conserved and protected.
The Farm Bill passed by this Congress and signed by President Obama did none of those things. Millions of Americans will have less money for food, insurance companies come between farmers and their compensation, animals will continue to suffer on factory farms and industrial slaughterhouses, and our air, water and topsoil are being polluted and mined so that the US can balance its balance of trade by exporting food.
