Hour One: "Brunch With Bernie" - Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) takes your calls

Can you afford food tasters to make sure what we’re about to eat is actually safe?

People who eat food are screwed.  Giant, transnational agribusiness corporation Cargill announced yesterday that it is recalling 36 million pounds of contaminated ground turkey – that has killed at least one person and sickened 76 others across 26 states.  Cargill is just now announcing the recall even though the outbreak started back in March.  Coincidentally – back in June – House Republicans passed legislation that g
