Senate to vote on food safety bill

(CNN) - The Senate is expected to vote Tuesday on a food safety bill that will give more power to the Food and Drug Administration in an effort to bolster the safety of the nation's food supply.

A version of the bill was passed by the House of Representatives in July of 2009 but has languished in the Senate, a fact that has angered some food safety advocates.

    Looks like the old infected eggs on the hill are trying to distance themselves from the young infected eggs in the coop.

    Don't worry- Republicans will reflexively vote against this- after all it's for the good of us all, and not business!
