House of Representatives Bends Over Again

In case you missed it, the House of Representatives bent over yet again for corporate interests, this time, the food industry.

The House voted to eliminate all state food safety laws in favor of one national weak law written by food industry lobbyists. In yet another act of treason against the American people, members of the House of Representatives surrendered their pledge to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States by offering, yet again, to hand power over to corporate personhood, to greed, and to those who would directly hurt Americans.

Here is yet another reason we need to concentrate on throwing these anti-American, undemocratic bums out in November.

It will take an incredible campaign to raise awareness and convince traditional Republican voters that the party is acting against their interests.

The districts have been gerrymandered in such a way that the elections are nearly rigged ... last month Reuters reported that only 33 of 435 seats are expected to be competitive.

Then there are the flawed electronic voting systems.

And the press has not bothered to cover either issue.

Shows how deep conservative respect for states rights (as opposed to "states rights") really runs....
