15 GOP senators help Democrats kill Constitution

In a stunning expansion of the power of unelected bureaucrats to control the population, the U.S. Senate voted today to approve S.510–the so-called ‘Food Safety Act.’ 15 GOP Senators helped Democrats pass the bill, which gives the FDA and the Agricultural Secretary powers the Constitution does not allow.
Not a single Democrat voted against the ominous measure, which was first submitted by ‘Little Dick’ Durbin, D-Illinois.
The bill gives sweeping powers to the FDA and the Secretary of Agriculture to make unilateral decisions, with no input from Congress, that can potentially shut down small family farms, particularly organic farmers.
