As seen on ‘twitter yesterday’!

Remember my past postings?

This is just a few of what has been happening and now will continue to happen because

“You”

have not been paying attention to

“Your”

Federal and State Congress!

The House of Representatives just voted 300-131 to remove “Country of origin labeling” known as (COOL) on chicken, pork and beef sold in the US.

The House of Representatives has voted to repeal country-of-origin labeling (COOL) for beef, pork, and chicken.

Texas Republican Rep. Michael Conaway’s Country of Origin Labeling Amendments Act of 2015 passed late Wednesday night by a 300-131 vote.

Conaway introduced the bill on May 18 — the same day the World Trade Organization rejected a U.S. appeal of its decision that COOL unfairly discriminates against meat imports and gives the advantage to domestic meat products.

COOL, which went into effect for meat in 2013, require that packaging indicate the country, or countries, where animals were born, raised and slaughtered.

Supporters of repeal don’t want the U.S. subjected to the $3.6 billion in potential retaliatory tariffs sought by Canada and Mexico.

They also argue that the rule has already burdened the U.S. meat industry.

House Democrats who spoke on the floor in support of the bill included Reps. Costa, Scott, Sanford Bishop (D-GA), Mike Thompson (D-CA), Henry Cuellar (D-TX) and Rep. Kurt Schrader (D-OR) who said that, “COOL may have been well-intended, but we’ve lost four times at the WTO … let’s repeal it, let’s move on.”

I know

“We do not care about our life, health, family, or country!”

Let us just keep voting these bums back in to office?

P.S.

Remember, Bernie Sanders has been in an office of government

for 35 years

and today he is demanding that congress,

of which he is a member, pass laws?

35 years and he did not know that he should be one of those that he is now demanding to past a law, any law?

Please think and vote?

  1. I agree that Country of origin label should be mandatory. I personally prefer to buy organic/ecological products that are from Sweden as much as possible. Otherwise I shop for products from the EU. I want to support Sweden’s economy.

      Thanks for your comment, without the labels how could you know?
      It is good to shop were one eats because it is easier to know that you are buying and eating what you paid for and getting sick or dead is drag?
      Protecting your countries economy also helps to protect your pocketbooks.
      I wish that someday this country would re-learn this fact!

  2. It’s really not fair to the consumer to have their meats come from “mystery” countries. Right now I avoid meats from other countries when I see it on the label. Now how will I know? Doesn’t the government have something more important to spend their time on?
