  1. Perhaps the FDA should simply be held to task and be held accountable.

    If they need more resources to increase inspections, why start a whole other new agency, rather than require better performance and boost spending on the system you already have?

  2. So, Durbin is suggesting that the correction of a failure of government, should be creating more government.

  3. Umm Dick, could you get back to me on that?

    I’m going to try and first convince Americans, their money would be better spent, on hookers and blow.

  4. Maybe the answer is simple.

    FDA hires politically connected cronies, like Chicago/Cook County/etc that essentially do nothing?

    Think baby formula and go from that

  5. Durbin is comical, a 79 year old dies and it’s the ice cream?

    Durbin’s legislation would establish a new Food Safety Administration.

    It would be run by food safety experts who are focused on protecting the nations food supply.

    Like Anthony Fauci?

  6. We need to get rid of these unelected three letter agencies that do the bidding for RINOs and liberal loons through regulation.

    Look what our resident liberal lobbyist has done to help destroy this state.
