Shutdown Mess: FDA Stops Routine Food Inspections

Share |

As members of Congress and White House representatives work to reverse the U.S. government shutdown, now in its second week, here is some alarming news featured in Harpers Weekly Review:

The FDA confirmed that it had suspended routine inspections of the nation’s food, and a shortage of federal funding led several states to discontinue food benefits to poor women and children. “A bunch of little boys arguing that they want their way.”

Friends, be safe.

I'm with you sister. And Cruz and company have really gone off the deep end with the tea party people -- still talkin' about Obama is a Muslim, etc. Of course, there's nothing wrong with being a Muslim but Obama has said time and time again that he's not one. I just think certain factions HATE Obama and would fight him on just about anything.
