The Humane Score Card


I receive, periodically, a report from the Humane Society Legislative Fund. This lays out statistics for Congress by Republican and Democrat vote on animal fighting, horse soring, horse racing, horse slaughter, animal welfare funding, veterinary medicine, and the all-important King Amendment blocking state laws protecting farm animals.
<br>”Soring,” the practice of using caustic chemicals, sharp objects and other methods upon Tennessee walking horses and related breeds to exaggerate their high-stepping gait for competition, is still in use. The King Amendment wants to block state laws for better care of farm animals. Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa is the author of this motion.
<br>The votes in the Senate and the House, as I count them in this exhaustive statistical report, add up to 98% Democrat and the balance 2% Republican in favor of the Humane Society’s lobbying for the animal protection laws.
<br>There isn’t anything else left to say.
