Response to Galraedia (Original post)

4. I watched the ad campaigns....

I do private caregiving...and watched the progression of the ads while at my client's house...
and watched as he struggled in making up his mind...

the corporate ads were amazing in their twisting of the truth and making it sound reasonable.
They enlisted respected community leaders, family organic farmers, doctors, nurses, housewives....

And the message went from it will cost farmers, to it will cost manufacturers, add to your food bill,
and the final message in the last couple weeks it that the bill was poorly written and would cause great confusion.

My client, in spite of all our discussions, and my pointing out my side of the argument, decided that it was a badly written law and voted against it.

The ads PR folks are very clever.
