Obama to sign food safety bill

Washington (CNN) - President Barack Obama is expected to sign into law the most-sweeping overhaul of America's food safety system since 1938 after he returns to Washington on Tuesday from a family vacation in Hawaii.

The bill allows for greater governmental regulation of the U.S. food system - recently in the national spotlight for numerous egg and produce recalls.

    Another important step forward. 1.1M new jobs created, the financial markets fully recovered from Bush (my 401K is back, and yes it is safe to look again), DADT repealed. President Obama is the only adult in the room.
