Letter: Our three lawmakers

I would like to know how my legislators would actually vote on the original bills before they start pushing compromise bills that don’t really do anything.

To the Editor:

Last year the Supreme Court forced the Federal Reserve, which is a private corporation made up of the biggest banks, to reveal the details of what they did in secret from 2007-2010. They told us they printed $5 trillion for the bailouts. The truth is they electronically printed $29 trillion out of thin air and gave it to themselves and banks in other countries.

Our three legislators had to have known about this when they voted for the infrastructure bill. The leaders of ag groups were also pushing for passage of that bill. They were trying to give their members 20 cent candy that was going to cost the tax payers 80 cents or a dollar. I won’t speculate as to the motivation of these “leaders.” Inflation affects us all.

Something like 80–90% of fresh vegetables consumed in this country come from Mexico. It’s easy to understand why, people down there have to work for a living. It seems everywhere you look, from D.C. down to the local level, “leaders” are trying to get “free money,” myself included.

The USA in general needs to produce more products for itself, and legislators need to stop trying to buy votes. It puts people out of work. Let’s start buy forcing a floor vote on Mandatory Country Of Origin Labeling. Call your “veteran” legislators and ask them why they can’t get it to a floor vote when it has bipartisan support.

Are they only pretending to support it? The big four beef packers have much deeper pockets than us farmers. Who in America doesn’t want a label on the beef they buy that says what country it was raised in? The packers put “Product of USA” on it even if it’s not raised here. Maybe we can save some small independent feeders from being gobbled up by the monopolies. I would like to know how my legislators would actually vote on the original bills before they start pushing compromise bills that don’t really do anything. We can do our own term limits.
