This is the vote on Closure on S.510 (FDA Food Take-over Bill)

This is one really bad bill and a "lame duck" grab for power through the FDA. If you think the price of oil is a problem for U.S. citizens, just wait. If this bill passes the Senate both Supply and Price of food in the U.S. will sky rocket.

The links on the bottom of the post do not work, they were for navigation within the document and I did not post the entire document. (had trouble getting it to copy from source).

There is a series of jokes that end with “and then the argument started”.

This is no joke, and will end with “and then the SHOOTING started”.

There were 10 Republicans “Not Voting”. I am not sure if this was done in stealth by allowing the Pubbies to leave for recess and then calling for the vote, or if the 10 Republicans are Traitors too.

KBH (R TX) is on that list.

” So. are the Republicans going to give us thsi gold plated food straitjacket? “

This bill was introduced by that great humanitarian (/sarc - for those who haven’t had their coffee yet) Dick Durbin, and had twelve co-sponsors...

SEVEN of those twelve were Republicans....

(I’m looking for the list - can’t remember where I saw it...)

So, by a quick scan, two of the bill’s Republican Sponsors (Alexander and Gregg) ran-for-cover and didn’t vote...

Seriously, some of the Senate think the 6 year term and the wait insulates them from vote consequences. (short voter memory)

We have that in TX with both KBH and Cornyn. KBH is up for election in 2012, Cornyn not until 2014. Both Toast.

I can beat that - we have Binghaman and Udall — both ‘empty suit’ Dem hacks...

I think we have a chance to bury Binghaman in ‘12, though... ;)

Judging by DeMint’s not voting and the time of the vote. It may be that the Dems placed a stealth vote after some Pubbies left for recess. Not sure.

Of course it makes no difference, the Dems “lame duck” Congress still has the votes to do whatever they want until the 112th Congress is sworn in.

The point is, we must not be caught asleep before January.

Binghaman

I pray you are right about him. I despise the cretin. Many years ago he beat a friend of mine when he won his first senate race. He is a vile hard left corrupt slime. I could write you a book about he and Ann (his wife). And about his uncle John who was the local Dem King Maker who got him elected. That is NM politics.

” I pray you are right about him. “

Me too - but it depends on a lot of things going ‘right’, since we have to overcome the entrenched Dem machine that’s ‘owned’ this state forever...

At the very least, our new Republican Governor has to do a bang-up job, and then we need to recruit a viable candidate from our heavily-Republican (my precinct went 60% R on the 2nd) downstate area....

The good news is that the Crystal-gazing, tree-hugging, ORGANIC-GARDENING crowd that dominates the North end of the State, are really up-in-arms about this Food Bill....

So, we have a chance.... ;)

Tennessee’s Lamar Alexander (RINO) is a Co-sponsor, Bob Corker (R) also joined in the YES voting. I’ve called several times.

Test vote for the DREAM Act?

Thank you Senators for deputizing the Food Police and driving even more independent farmers out of business so big corporate agribusiness can come in, collude with one another to jack up prices to new and loftier highs. Look for Archer Daniels Midland stock to jump Monday and well as John Deere, Monsanto and the other usual suspects. This is truly becoming a Vaseline country.

Not voting does not mean they support this bill. It could be the timing, and if all repubs voted, they are out numbered by the democrats for right now.....I talked to Jim Demints staff
and he is against the bill, and said he was not going to vote on the bill......probably for a reason....maybe something else is up

The complimentary House bill passed last year.

See FR thread:

“The Jackasses did it……HR 2749 the Seizure of the US food supply and production passed the House”

Some of us have been tracking this a long time.

” HR 2749 the Seizure of the US food supply and production passed the House” “

Yeah - many, if not most, of us were disarmed by the notion that this would be one of those bills - like cap&tax - that would pass the House and then quietly die in the Senate...

Oops.....

Below is a list of the senator supporting S.510 and the amount of special interest payola each of them received. Please note that RHINO Saxby Chambliss from GA received the largest payoff. And lets not forget our other RHINO senator Johnny Isakson. A proud day for Georgia.

The first figure is the amount received from groups supporting S.510 and the second figure is the amount from groups opposing S.510. So I guess its a no lose situation.

“This is the vote on Closure on S.510 (FDA Food Take-over Bill) “

http://www.senate.gov/pagelayout/legislative/a_three_sections_with_teasers/votes.htm

NO! The cloture vote was the one before, #250.
Further, these are both votes on the motion to proceed, not on the actual bill.
Cloture must be invoked again after consideration of the bill.

http://www.senate.gov/reference/resources/pdf/RL30360.pdf
“...This motion to proceed, as it is called, usually
is debatable and, consequently, subject to a filibuster.12 Therefore, the Senate may
have to invoke cloture on this motion before being able to vote on it. Once the
Senate adopts the motion to proceed and begins consideration of the measure itself,
a filibuster on the measure then may begin, so that cloture must be sought anew on
the measure itself.”
