A Top Down Bill

The Farm Bill substantially subsidizes monoculture, and mainly corn and soybeans–the culprits in our mostly meat and processed food diets. As a taxpayer, you are contributing to your and/or your neighbor’s poor health. This is not how it should work–grassroots efforts can make a difference, and we can make our voices heard. Contact your congressperson.
