Bernie Slams Giant Food Corporations: "We can grow food in this country that is healthy."

"I believe there should be labeling on the food products that
we eat, whether they're GMOs or what not.

"We are taking on large corporations who make billions
of dollars a year and they do whatever they can to suppress
the truth.

"And that is the culture that we have got to change in
this country from top to bottom.


"We can grow food in this country that is healthy.

"We can do it in a way that workers are treated with dignity
and respect
and earn a decent wage.


"But we can't do it unless you have a president and a
congress prepared to stand up to these large corporations."

- Bernie Sanders

From Bernie's pre-rally meeting in Bakersfield.
The quoted parts start at 10:43.

I haven't had the opportunity to see very much of this - a candidate taking the time to listen to people's concerns. I like the respectful way he does this.
