S510 Dead. Reid Can't Read (the Constitution)

The "Food Safety Bill" will not survive 10 minutes in a Federal Court--assuming it's not a Carter/Clinton judge.

...Section 107 of the bill raises taxes, and as any Constitutional scholar can attest — or anyone else who has actually read the document that Senators swore to uphold when taking office — only the House of Representatives has that power...

(But when the 4th Amendment requires probable cause and TSA feels up nuns....)

Anyhoo, it's not likely that the bill will get back to the House, then back to the Senate, in time.

Only good thing about this bill was Amend. 4697 aka the Earmark Moratorium. That was defeated so I say kill the bill.
