All Your Food Are Belong To Us

Thanks to the Senate, passing SB 510 late night last night (Sunday).
(Can we kick them out now, instead of having to wait until January??)

They did this, after objecting to the fact he Senate passed the Food Safety and Modernization Act on Nov. 30 by a vote of 73-25. But the bill was later invalidated by a technical objection because it was a revenue-raising measure that did not originate in the House — Senate staff had failed to substitute the food safety language into a House-originated bill.

(Imagine that. I don’t recall they had an objection when they passed that tax bill – before sending it to the House. Will wonders never cease.)

Impact on small family farms, and the 10 biggest lies about this SB 510.

Here is the Bill itself – for your reading pleasure.

Oh, and these, too:
S. 384 & H.R. 3077 & H.R. 2749 I
