HAVE SOME SENATORS BEEN PAID OFF TO SUPPORT S.510 - THE 'FOOD SAFETY MODERNIZATION ACT'?
11-19-2010 12:16 am - John W. Wallace
The following is a list of U.S Senators and the Bribes (I mean campaign contributions) that these Senators received from Special Interest Groups to either support or oppose S.510 - The FDA Food Safety and Modernization Act. Money received by elected officials from Special Interest groups to vote a certain way on a bill or bills is nothing less than Bribery. I have listed the names of the Senators, the Party and State, and the amount of Special Interest Bribes (I mean campaign contributions) that they received thus far:

We should pay close attention to how the Senators vote when the bill reaches the floor of the Senate for a final Yes or No vote. Will those Senators who received a significant amount of money from Special Interest groups that support this anti-Liberty bill, vote Yes? We will find out shortly.

I hope the bill fails. I see we have the best government money can buy. It came to no surprise that the two communists from arkansas voted for the bill.

Wow good work on tracking down all the bribes. You got one thing wrong tho. Not all 'Veterinarians' support it. I'm a veterinarian and I know I sure as hell do not. You meant to say that the American Veterinary Medical Association supports it. Which they do. I sent the AVMA an email the other day telling them how sorely disappointed I am that they should support this latest fetid peice of fascist legislation. Of course, no response. The American Veterinary Medical Association does not represent it's members at all. They are a snobbish,unionish, fascist orgaization that cajoles it's 'members' into continuing their memberships because that's the cheapest way of obtaining malpractice insurance. (Their malpractice insurance requires membership). The only other benefit to membership is their (essentially worthless) journal, which every veterinarian that I know just tosses in the trash upon recieving. So please don't say that veterinarians support S 510. This one emphati
cally does not. (Hey, I have a garden- and so do lots of my clients!!)

You posted in this article http://www.libertynewsonline.com/article_301_29693.php that Senator Hatch was voting for S 510- the food safety bill and had been "bought off".

First of all he voted against the bill twice last week and continues to remain against the bill, so he obviously hasn't been bought off for the bill. You can check the record but his stance is clear, you can also view his statement against the bill here, http://hatch.senate.gov/public/index.cfm?FuseAction=PressReleases.Detail&PressRelease_id=65fb793a-1b78-be3e-e031-79b91e3aa9e4. I hope that you'd correct your posting about Senator Hatch's stance.

Anyways if you'd like to discuss this you are welcome to call me at 202-228-3095 or email me back. Thanks for your time.

That is very interesting about Hatch, as I complained about SB 510 a couple of weeks ago and he sent me a letter, stating he had supported it and voted for it in committee. This was already known by me. Sounds like he has had a change of heart because too many patriots have voiced opposition. There is always hope. DON\\\'T BE AFRAID TO VOICE YOUR CONCERNS. YOU ARE HEARD.

Orrin Hatch is listed as a Sponsor of S.510 on Govtrack. More outright lying by bought politicians? Just asking......

This is a list of who's who of corrupt politicians. It could not be any more obvious. I find it shocking that even they would take bribes, but nothing is off limits for anyone who has taken vows to serve Satan. The servants of Satan, the communists, socialists, corporatists, fascists, liberals are becoming more and more brazen and out in the open. They are in for a huge surprise...God will not be mocked.
