|Whereas:||Current USDA regulations force food producers to needlessly destroy their harvests to avoid government fines that would put them out of business altogether ; and|
|Whereas:||Tens of millions have been added to the unemployment roles over the last few weeks; and|
|Whereas:||American citizens are waiting in miles-long lines at the nation’s food banks; and|
|Whereas:||The dangers of the current red-tape and cronyism-infested system combined with what should only be minor hiccups from the coronavirus panic (if not for the media and tyrannical politicians) are becoming a slow-motion train wreck playing out before our eyes.|
|Therefore:||I insist you:|
>> Immediately suspend these harmful USDA regulations so American farmers can sell their harvests directly to local butchers, processors, and American consumers.
>> Then use your bully pulpit to insist Congress pass Representative Massie’s PRIME Act, to permanently fix the food supply chain.
