Has anyone checked the bills iniated by Talent? Check this out!

Click the link above and you will see 39 bills introduced by Talent pertaining to chemicals, sounds like he is a real go getter doesn't it???

These bills are waivers for tariffs for various chemicals...like Fenamidone, Trifloxystrobin, Iprodione, etc (39 of them) S.2513-S.2546 and bills S.1657-S1650. These bills were co-sponsored by 5 entities at just about $20,000 to $30,000 a piece. http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?tab=other&bill... .

And wouldn't you know it, the 4 of the 5 entities that have pushed these bills are the TOP contributors to his 2006 campaign.

Just what are these chemicals anyway??? How are they affecting us? The cancer rate in Missouri is already higher than the national average. http://www.cdc.gov/cancer/CancerBurden/mo.htm . But,I guess the EPA wont be able to help us find out. It seems the WH has cut funding, no more public access coming soon.

Well off that rant....

On to this rant.....

More about what Talent has brought to Missouri

Seems Talent has no real talent of his own. Most of his agenda is from the repubican book, How to keep a redneck in the dark while making him think he is standing for something honorable!

Reasons to vote :dem: Democrat!
