While they eat all organic foods for the health of themselves and their families of course..

Well the jokes on them because water and salt are exempt, short of untreated sewage water, they can use anything on those fruits and vegetables....fruits and vegetables which are up to 90 something percent water. That way the chemicals and pesticides still get in organic food.

Oh look! Another list of politicians to vote out of office! I wish my state would get its act together.

Amash and Massie voted no, despite it technically going against their ideology. Cuz they're good dudes, and they know. Hell Massie lives on a self built self sustaining farm in the cuts. Good guy. He's also trying to get this 9/11 pages declassified I think he's read them.

In what way does this go against Massie and Amash's ideology?
A no vote seems perfectly inline with small government conservatism, especially when they are libertarian leaning.

It would eliminate the chance of a gov't mandate on the private sector

You can't tell who voted for what on just the roll call vote. I'd love to see the bill. The thing was probably so loaded with pork, bullshit and proclamations it was probably unreadable and thats what happens to a large number of good bills that get voted down. Before deciding what happened and why, I'd get a look at the finished product they were voting on.

Of course, the organic foods market is the good guy. They want you to know about GMOs for your health. The money they get from the alarmism about safe, tested FDA-approved GMOs is just a bonus! Honest! /s

Do you even science? You do realize that is not even remotely close to what these people are talking about, right?

There is nothing wrong with GMOS as proven by multiple studies therefore I could care less if it's labeled.

Industry-funded studies with an agenda. Science has been compromised.

Many things in the past have been proven to be harmless, only to turn out later that they actually were. See DDT as one of thousands of examples.

well some people do care. So we shouldn't BAN the labeling of them.

I would like to see 'how' the modification was done on each GMO food. Was it through selective breeding of a species or were virus' and bacteria used to change the DNA between two totally different creatures to achieve a desired effect with much less data on the long term effects of such a change.

I'm in no way against something on the basis of it being a GMO, but I am against GMO's being rushed off the research table before it has been proven on the long term. This increases the cost of research but the future is worth so much more.
