I mentioned last week that a new Big Foodie bill opposed by a diverse coalition of limited government activists, small family farmers, and left-leaning “locovores” was coming down the pike.
Today, I’m disappointed to tell you, the regulatory expansion bill masquerading as a “safety” measure passed by a large margin — with stomach-turning Republican support.
Here’s the roll call vote.
The 15 power-grabby Republicans who voted for it:
The Senate bill must be reconciled with a version that passed the House of Representatives in 2009 before Congress adjourns for the year.
STALL....GOP....RUN OUT THE CLOCK!
You’d think farmer Michelle would try to convince her husband to veto it.
Our Own Government Has Become Our Enemy - Paul Babeu
Now, it goes to the House, no?
2012, Lugar......and you are history.
What clock? Look how many Republicans voted for this deprivation of liberty!
Well right there is your list of republicans to primary next time around. Someone needs to make sure this kind of garbage gets exposed.
Does this mean I cannot grow my own vegetables?
The RINO parade....squash them!
Exactly. Run the ball, keep inbounds and run the play clock to 1 sec before you snap the ball. Then go home.
Kirk didn’t waste any time, did he?
Yes, but now you can't eat them.
I have family members in DC supporting this because their 90 year old mom died from tainted peanut butter. Can somebody tell me or show me a link about the back yard gardening stuff? You can’t pick your family. . .
I am pleasantly suprised to see that Georgia’s two RHINO senators Chambliss and Isakson finally put their fingers in the wind and decided to vote agains’t this montrosity. I guess now we will have to email them and thank them for doing the right thing. Barf!
“STALL....GOP....RUN OUT THE CLOCK!” . . .
Well, if this is the start they’re going to make this early, they better buck up a lot. - We voted for Alexander and Corker. At least Corker seemed at the time to be sensible, though we thought Alexander might be coming down with Potomac Fever. I’m not all that familiar with the bill, but I would have thought surely Corker wouldn’t do anything grievously hurtful to us little people. Maybe it’s something in the water up there that needs TERM LIMITS and people being sent up there who will VOTE term limits. - I don’t want to have to get a prescription for my supplements, or to be limited in my lettuce crop in the garden.
I didn’t even have to look to know my fat pig senator, Deb Stabacow would vote for anything to do with food.
