Pretty bad when a media source that has pretty much served as a veritable stenographer calls you out on your whacked Similac counterattack

The lean methodology for the government is likely more focused on budgetary than regulatory

And THAT'S why there are only 9 people. That's my entire point.

Zach Wilson is a film junkie which means not only does he watch his game tape religiously, he will also blow you in a Port Authority bathroom for the NC-17 cut of Bad Lieutenant.

Unconscionably partisan - and screw the GOP legislators who withheld support.  That said, this shouldn't have even approached a tipping point before our incompetent, monday morning quarterback administration went about about addressing it.  Case after case of deer-caught-in-the-headlights and then futilely scrambling after the fact....  Podium boy..

I don't know what was in either. But there were two seperate bills, both passed. And the one had bipartisan backing

I do find it interesting when you see things like this though

Lawmakers call the fda incompetent derelicts, hours after voting to give them millions of dollars to fix the problem they created

The one that passed with bipartisan support expanded access to the types of formula that can be purchased with WIC benefits. The one that passed based on party lines was the one that allocated money directly to the FDA to fix the problem.

It's the FDA's problem to fix, they deserve a lot of criticism for how they handled it, and they need money to fix it. Telling them to fix it without the funding doesn't help anybody.

I get it. But it's a stark contrast to how the private world would work.

If someone is monumentally incompetent in the private sector, you bring someone else in to fix it.

Obviously things are a little different with the government, but I'd think it makes sense to bring someone else in to oversee the process
