A Democratic Senator Betrays His Constituents on TPP, GMOs, and Animal Antibiotics

0

It’s easy to tell your voters and your party that you’re for voter rights, campaign finance reform, puppies, angels, and other issues without pending legislation. However, when it comes time for real votes on real legislation affecting all Americans, Senator Bennet is a Democratic Senator from Colorado who votes on behalf of corporate interests. TPP? The informed public hates it – Senator Bennet votes for it. The DARK Act prohibiting states from fully labeling food and GMOs? Over 90% of Americans want GMO labeling. Senator Bennet won’t commit. Public health or corporate factory animal processing using 80% of all antibiotics and creating new drug-resistant bacteria? Senator Bennet is AWOL. It’s time for the public to hold this Senator and others accountable.

The Tim Danahey Show started in July, 2010 at internet station Castle Rock Radio. It started as a one-day-per week endeavor and quickly grew to five days per week. The show discusses economics, government, social issues, history, and non-fiction books in a magazine format featuring in-depth conversations with guests. Politics and inflammatory conversations are discouraged as they are divisive and counter-productive. Instead, the show seeks under-reported topics and delves into facts, different perspectives, and ramifications of each perspective.
