The answers to the questions stated above, could easily derive dual answers, but the answer that matters is, will the world’s hungry be feed by big farm interest or the small farm interest. The USDA 2007 Farm Bill has been a major topic of discussion in the eyes of the world, mainly because our Congress of these United States of America has a major chance to stand as true humanitarians. A couple of weeks ago now, the House Agricultural Committee actually heard America’s cry for true reform and reacted by proposing the first stage in positively reforming the 2007 Farm Bill, by placing a cap on monies given to big farm interest. If you did not know the majority of subsidies are awarded to big farm interest, which enables them to price their agriculture product below normal market value, which further places weights of worry on the backs of small farmers, simply creating a market in which small farmers can not compete.
We @ TOUCH1 ask that you would accept a needed mission of contacting your Congress member immediately, either it be by email, phone call, fax, or simply a written letter asking them to support true reform in America’s farm community by voting “YES” for the Fairness in Farm and Food Policy Amendment. We also ask that in your sacrifice of time and unity that the closing remark of your communication be, “Congress can TOUCH1…Change the World”.
Thank you in advance for your Service,
