Sen. Warren (D-MA) introduced S. 3357, the Anti-Corruption and Public Integrity Act, last Tuesday, which means she got overshadowed by other news that day, amirite? But S. 3357 would (among so, so many other good things!) ban politicians who serve at the federal level from ever lobbying after they leave office, prevent these same politicians from owning individual stocks while they're serving the public, and change rulemaking procedures so that big corporations can't have more say about federal regulations than the rest of the public. Oh, and it'd also force the IRS (and not the candidates, why didn't we think of that before?) to release eight years of tax returns for Presidential and Vice Presidential candidates and two years for candidates for Congress, but that's just icing on the cake. So Progress America helps you tell your Congressfolk to support S. 3357, and thus help restore ethics, integrity, and real law and order to our government.
Meanwhile, the FDA has proposed restricting antibiotic use in animals -- but would still let factory farm corporations use antibiotics on healthy feed animals, which is the main reason we're facing antibiotic-resistant superbugs. Don't let factory farm PR hacks tell you the "real" problem is with overprescribing antibiotics on humans, not in a world where four out of every five antibiotics go to animals-not-people, and too often factory farms use antibiotics merely to make their animals meatier or help them endure their squalid surroundings. If, one day, we live in a world where the next cut could kill us, we're sure not going to sit around the campfire and say well, we might all be dead now, but at least we preserved profits for factory farm CEOs! or at least chicken was cheap for a while! So Penn PIRG helps you tell our FDA to ban using antibiotics on feed animals for any reason other than illness.
UPDATE. I misidentified Sen. Warren's bill (first paragraph above) as S. 3397; it's actually S. 3357. Error corrected above.
