Squabbles over American food safety – Why are some politicians against it?

1 Dec
I don’t understand why some Senators and farmers are opposed to something that would benefit all of us.  Food is one of the most important things for the human being and these days when our food come from helter skelter, someone should be checking to see that the food we are eating and paying big bucks for are worth the money.  When things go wrong, we all pay. Our health suffers and our healthcare costs go up unnecessarily just because someone was trying to cut corners.  I do not mind paying a dollar extra for my food if I know it will be properly inspected and the best practices are used in its production and delivery.
   When all is said and done, our health is all we’ve got and we cannot put a price on good health. When we are sick we are poor. The wealthiest people in the world often say “I’d give anything for good health” this should tell us that money cannot buy health.
Kudos to our senators and politicians who are on the right track on this and for those detractors, I say, you need to examine your values and consider whether the public is best served by you being in office.
