$80 million? You’d think multi-national chemical companies were struggling to compete with gardeners making organic compost in their back yard. It’s almost enough to make us shed a nitrogen-laced tear for their Wall Street shareholders. Almost.

Cuts to home health care will put fragile seniors and people with disabilities in greater danger of falls and illness. In addition, it will force many of our parents and grandparents to move out of their homes and into more expensive nursing homes, costing families tens of millions of dollars. Ending this unnecessary and unfair tax exemption for sales of non-organic fertilizer would prevent the 10 percent cut to in-home care legislators have proposed.
