Earlier this week, Rep. Thomas Massie (R–Ky.) introduced an important set of bills that would loosen slightly the FDA's stranglehold on the interstate shipment and sale of raw milk, writes Baylen Linnekin. In another welcome development, Massie said he intends to introduce other "food freedom"-themed bills later this year.
"You should be able to control what goes into your own body," he says. "You should be able to control what your family eats."
"It's a great issue because it's about freedom," says Massie.
If people can agree on those principles across party lines, then there may be hope for us after all.
