    We import a lot of our food from foreign countries, shoud we not regulate the safety of imported food?

    I think the FDA should have arrest capacity.
    In the USA of course.


    Most of our medicines or the ingredients are imported.
    Less than 1% is inspected.

    the industry can regulate itself. if a company sells tainted meat, someone gets sick, they sue the company, make millions, and the company dies. Other companies in industry have greater incentive not to sell shitty food. Government not needed.

    Why should the FDA be able to arrest people? Right now, with the FDA being so pathetic that we need this law as part of some massive emergency, less than 3000 people die in the US as a result of food borne illnesses. I am willing to bet that not only will that number not go down, it will increase as a direct result of this new law.

    If you don't attack Democrats specifically for this, then you're part of the problem.

    If we Democrats fail to point out that the Conservatives care far more about the profits of companies that sell tainted food, then we are part of the problem. In fact, given the Republican opposition to a fair First Responders Health Care Bill, it should constantly be point out that they care more for the excess wealth of the ober rich than they do for the American Citizen. Even when the ober rich are foriegn corperations.

    Wait until someone dies.

    Let's hope it's "just" one.

    Companies who sell tainted food make the same profits as the ones who don't.
