A Budget That Tightens Belts by Emptying Stomachs
In These Times - 5/22/2013.
By Michelle Chen - A time-honored tactic of conservative lawmakers is to "starve the beast" by defunding government programs. In the case of food stamps - the quintessential whipping boy for budget hawks - they’re going a step further by trying to starve actual people.

India has yet to approve herbicide-tolerant seeds. This is a replay of how GM technology took root in the country 12 years ago.
