Killing the organic goose?

Some Republican members of the U.S. Congress, acting at the food producers who want easy profits, are trying to make it lawful to label food "organic" when the food producer or farmer claims they can't get organic products to feed their animals, etc. They must have been ingesting too many pesticides. People won't be willing to pay those higher prices the producers crave if they buyers don't believe they are actually getting organic products.
