Subject: Stop the Monsanto monopoly

Stop Monsanto and their monopolistic practices. This is the food supply we are talking about here. Is there anything more basic to existence?? Want to make health care cheaper, MAKE THE FOOD SUPPLY BETTER. SOMETHING NEEDS TO BE DONE NOW!!
There is no free market with these practices and YOU ARE THE ONES TASKED WITH
PREVENTING THIS. Do something!!

Maybe you致e noticed prices rising at the supermarket even while most big food companies made record profits this year; Maybe you are a farmer who has trouble getting your meat to market because there are no small-scale processing facilities in your region; Maybe you池e concerned about food safety and the spread of bacteria like E. coli謡hich happens much faster when meat and vegetables are processed in big centralized locations; Maybe your local farm has gone out of business because it couldn稚 compete with the prices set by industrial farms and consolidated buyers. And you probably know consumers having trouble finding good food at affordable prices, as well as farmers having trouble getting good food into mainstream markets.
