Iowa’s Senators Fight for Bacon
California is going anti-bacon and Iowa’s Senators want a word.
According to The Washington Free Beacon:
Iowa senators Joni Ernst (R.) and Chuck Grassley (R.) are pushing back against a California law that will cut off the Golden State’s supply of pork and harm Iowa farmers.Advertisement
The California law, Proposition 12, will ban the sale of pork from farms where a pig is raised on less than 24 square feet of space. Since only 4 percent of the nation’s hog farmers abide by it, the law will eliminate 96 percent of pork suppliers from the California market. Iowa is the largest pork supplier in the nation. Ernst and Grassley on Thursday introduced a bill, the Exposing Agricultural Trade Suppression Act, that would combat California’s law by preventing any state from regulating the production or distribution of agricultural products in other states and localities.
“We thought we’ve seen it all from the radical left—from defunding the police, to the Green New Deal, to trillions in new spending with skyrocketing inflation—but this takes it to a whole new level: banning bacon? No way, folks,” said Ernst, a member of the Senate Agriculture Committee. “Radicals in liberal states like California shouldn’t be allowed to punish hardworking farmers and producers in Iowa, which is why I’m pushing to strip out this ridiculous law and ensure Iowans can continue selling the nation’s best pork, bacon, and eggs to Americans across the country.”
More than 20 states have challenged the California law, and Iowa farmers have said complying with the legislation will cost them millions.
The California law was enacted from a 2018 ballot measure and will take effect January 1, 2020.
What a group of whacko’s… The voters in California (well BIG cities) must be out of their minds.
I was raised in the Bay Area and moved out of Calif. when Jerry Brown sprayed us all with bug spray. A chopper went down right around the corner from my house. My point is I left a lot of good friends there when I moved South, and they all moved to the Northern end of Calif. The Whacko’s are the SoCal freaks and the hollywierdo’s. Everyone else went to the hills.
Maybe they should be cut off from all food.
They have to ban idiots,politicians, and many problems will be solved, See ya newsom. has to be related to crazy,piglosi, in the blood
Impeached joKe bidet for election fraud all counting machines were indeed connected to the internet and breached oath of office.
Election 2020 null and void .
Can’t certify fraud…
when did this country become a “socialist” country. I guess if you vote demo crap, you vote sociallist. Be real and vote “republican”.
I guess now the pigs will be housed in indevidual condos so that they will be slaudered with a movie of a wounderful coast line lined with 50 million dollar houses. Yes to fooliah liberals. By the way, what do they eat????????????????
well these people of califoolya will stop eating any living thing since they might have to kill it (including plants) we’ll all will have food to eat and they can starve themselves to death and leave their portion for the people who want to live in this world, Once a fool, always a fool. GOOD BYE califoolims.
Why is Grassley up set over the pigs? He should be more upset over the infrastructure bill ha voted for, this going to cost Iowans more money than the loss of pork sales to California.
I wonder what he was thinking when he cast that vote. I’m not from Iowa, but always thought he was an upstanding senator. Well, I guess not!
These clowns seem to have Schnitz for brains and are proving it !
good news is that it should reduce the price for the rest of us
7 bucks a lb for what is essentially nothing more than fat is one of the bigger scams we are experiencing
Reducing space for pigs to be raised in is a Chinese scam to allow Chinese pork to be sold in California exclusively. Dirty contaminated pork that kills Americans.
Let them ban everything. The Kali-zombies of the mega-man-swarms will be cannibalizing each other soon enough. Mark my words!
What is wrong with those foolish people in California? Don’t these idiots know the hogs are going to be slaughtered anyway. I bet these fools don’t know about chicken houses and the number of chickens they hold.All good conservative need to leave California and let the liberals revert to total socialism. They will quickly learn what it does to citizens.
California should sink into the sea
I guess we have no choice but to contraband bacon like people doing with cigarettes.
Very soon left in Cali will be dopes in Sacramento, illegals and homeless. Ha Ha Gruesome Newsom for sure will be in never never land. How is the 2024????? prospect that you Evil Queen Pelosi groomed you for, by covering all your shenanigans. See WH on postcard.
I came here from Socialist/Communist Poland. Even there we had bacon, we did not had money to buy, but was there.
Until was nothing on the stores shelves, and food was regulated for every person, how much, what kind, and still the lines was forever long to buy 1 chicken a month or whatever was deliver to store that day and of cause you had a ticket for. See your future Cali, 5 largerst economy in a world, look what we got now. Crap Crap and more Crap.
