Only a week ago the violent excesses of Bureaucracy in the War On Food under current law were documented here: CLICK LINK

To no avail.

The Senate just passed their version of an expanded and revamped FDA with the aid of 15 Republican Senators.

Our good friend, the Welshman, is mad as hell about it all in his latest Conservative Examiner Column. (As he should be!)

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.
