What do Monsanto and Egypt’s new President Morsi have in common? Both are trying to execute big, sweeping power grabs. In Monsanto’s case, it is happening during the holiday lame duck session of congress. Very stealthfully Monsanto got their proposed law attached as a rider to the original House 2013 Agriculture Appropriations bill.
If passed, this law would allow new genetically engineered crops to be planted even when courts rule that the US Department of Agriculture has approved them illegally. Read about the bill.
In other words, good-bye farmer’s choice to plant non-GMO crops and hello full immunity from federal law for Monsanto.
