What will it take for Coburn to agree to pass Food Safety Modernization Act?
Tom Harkin (D-Iowa), Chairman of Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor & Pensions says:
1. We removed section on increasing FDA staff levels
2. We reduced $$$ authorization
3. We agreed to amendment on reducing duplication among agencies
"This is a food safety bill...ready to go...compromises in place. Not the time to debate earmarks."
"Why am I so passionate? Because people are dying."
"...send hopeful message to families before Thanksgiving."
Food Safety Modernization Act "...has no politics..."
"If we lose this....it will be very hard to put this back together again."
Senator Tom Coburn will do whatever it takes to block passage of the Food Safety Modernization Act. And he will succeed, no matter how many other Senators – and how many US families – want the bill to pass!!!!
