If ever there was a GMO lackey and puppet that stood for the poisoning of the people with GMOs over standing up for the constituents who voted him into office, its Representative Mike Pompeo. There’s a special kind of ‘wow’ reserved for Congressional bills like the one he’s once again proposing on behalf of Monsanto and Big Biotech.
The Kansas Republican would like to re-introduce Monsanto’s dream bill – it would give Monsanto, and their friends like Syngenta, Dow, and Bayer carte blanche (complete freedom) to grow GMO foods without labels, without state rights, and without consumer choice. It is a law that promotes the biotech agenda through and through. It was introduced during the last congressional sessions, but fortunately, did not pass. Pompeo is presenting it again. If the US ever wanted to just write Monsanto a blank check for their biotech herbicides and GMO crops, known for ruining health and damaging soil, then this legislation, dubbed by critics the Deny Americans the Right-to-Know (DARK) Act, is it.
