Michele Bachmann calls for less food regulation despite great safety concerns
Given the stories and potential scandals involving food safety in the United States, finding someone who believes food inspection is a burden would be difficult to find.
Enter Michele Bachmann.
The USDA doesn’t even have a cape against the giant bull of factory farms, yet Rep. Bachmann, a presidential candidate as well, thinks government is too tough against food safety.
“We want to have safety,” she said. “But we also want to have common sense.”
Right now, Rep. Bachmann, we have neither.
Small farmers, especially organic farmers and raw milk farmers, are feeling the heat of government intervention where safety isn’t a concern, unlike factory farms. Yet Bachmann isn’t defending these people from government intervention.
