Senate Erroneously Confirms ‘Food Safety Crisis’ Is Real Despite New CDC Data Proving Otherwise

"Congratulations on one of our final acts of sabotaging democracy and freedom together!"

"Congratulations on one of our final acts of sabotaging democracy and freedom together!"

Here’s something to chew on that you’ll be hard-pressed to find in the State-Run Media’s news buffet: The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) released “precise” new data last week that “thoroughly refute the misleading claims of alarmists advocating for vastly expanding federal regulation of the food supply.”

The House recently passed its version of the Food Safety bill using exaggerated CDC numbers from 1999 to create the aura of a crisis in Americans’ minds, reports the Heritage Foundation. On Sunday evening, the Senate pushed ahead in turning myths in to reality by agreeing to pass the ‘junk science’ legislation with a voice vote, despite the CDC’s new report released last Wednesday showing significant drops in food-borne illnesses and related deaths.

“The previous figures cited by the CDC originated from estimates compiled in 1999,” Heritage Foundation’ Diane Katz notes. “The new figures, employing data from 2000 to 2008 and better statistical methods, represent ‘the most accurate picture yet’ of food-borne illness, agency officials said.”

Just another instance of big government bureaucrats neglecting to take the time to read anything pertinent to the issue at hand before ‘passing the bill‘ and screwing American citizens with needless reforms for the sake of “change.”

NSLF’s Top 10 Least Wanted State and Local Bureaucrats

Editor’s Note: Candidates appear in no particular order.

Does trampling on citizens' rights and liberties count as "torture," Eric?

Does trampling on citizens' rights and liberties count as "torture," Eric?

1. Eric Mar | San Francisco Supervisor (D)* – Leading the city’s now infamous assault on children’s beloved Happy Meal toys, incumbent Supervisor Mar has also been busy in recent months trying to regulate citizen’s intake of soft drinks. “I’m proud that we protect the public’s health,” Mar says, even if he uses shoddy data to force his radical anti-choice agenda down the throats of citizens both young and old. When Mar’s not telling citizens what they can’t eat and drink, he can be seen pressuring pet stores to quit selling dogs and cats. *Mar’s not running for office right now, but it looks like he has his eyes on becoming the city’s next mayor. Don’t forget about him. And, trust us, we won’t let you.

Proud to be a jackass legislating in her own special interests.

Proud to be a jackass legislating in her own special interests.

2. Rep. Eileen Cody | Wash. State House (D-Seattle) – Washington State’s longest serving legislator is also its most predictable anti-tobacco foe, stopping at nothing to ensure smokers quit offending her. Earlier this year, Cody sponsored HB 2493 in a last ditch effort to tax cigarettes in to oblivion. “I really don’t care,” Cody said, about the potential for the state to actually lose tobacco sin tax revenue because cigarettes would no longer be affordable for most Washingtonians to purchase; her top priority, she proudly proclaims, is to “force people to quit smoking.”

Don't be fooled by Martin's 'family friendly' marketing schtick.

Don't be fooled by Martin's 'family friendly' marketing schtick.

3. Grier Martin | N.C. House (D-34) — Earlier this year, Martin was influential in passing a statewide ban on chocolate milk and juice products at child care facilities. Ironically, he says parents “can cram [their kids] with ice cream, sweets, 50-percent-fat milk, anything they want” after they get home from day care, perhaps as a symbol of goodwill between the nanny state and parents. Here’s our warning to concerned voters: Don’t accept candy from strangers and don’t think for a moment that Martin isn’t interested in ultimately controlling every aspect of your children’s lives from the cradle to the grave.

No tax is too sweeping or absurd for Basnight and Hackney.

No tax is too sweeping or absurd for Basnight and Hackney.

4 & 5. Marc Basnight | N.C. Senate (D) and Joe Hackney Speaker | N.C. House of Representatives (D)These two big government bureaucrats colluded in 2008 to propose a revenue-generating scheme that would monetarily penalize motorists for driving too much. Family vacations and weekend getaways, if vehicles’ owners were already over the limit, would warrant a “Vehicle Miles Traveled” tax to compensate the state for needlessly clogging roadways.

"Please tell Michelle I love her recipe for controlling citizens' diets."

"Please tell Michelle I love her recipe for controlling citizens' diets."

6. Dean Florez | Calif. Senate Majority Leader (D) – Florez has a knack for citing alarming nationwide statistics to boost the credibility of his statewide anti-soda crusade. Perhaps, that’s because he is a puppet of the California Center for Public Health Advocacy (CCPHA), who Florez even admits are the soda tax bill’s “sponsors.” While the CCPHA describes itself as a “nonpartisan” public health organization, its Board of Directors includes The Huffington Post’s Joel Epstein, a partisan journalist who makes no efforts to inform readers of his affiliation with the organization he advises in its ongoing war against consumers and the beverage industry. One thing is certain: Neither Florez nor his CCPHA cronies trust citizens to make the ‘right’ choices when it comes to the food and beverages they consume.

'Reality' is a lost concept in Hieftje's big head.

'Reality' is a lost concept in Hieftje's big head.

7. John Hieftje | Mayor, Ann Arbor, Mich. (D) – DailyKos.com, the virtual mouthpiece of the radical Left, calls Ann Arbor “one of the most liberal cities in the U.S.” And, by their account, “Mayor John Hieftje is doing a good job,” so that should be reason enough to include him on our “Least Wanted” list. According to his campaign website, Hieftje boasts, “I led City Council in setting the policy for the complete re-organization of the City bureaucracy, now saving taxpayers over $15 million per year.” As A2Politico.com’s Margaret Wong points out, Hieftje reduced staff, but wages increased. “We’re paying more for less,” Wong reveals. “We’re getting less for more.”

Squeaky clean good looks can be deceiving.

Squeaky clean good looks can be deceiving.

8. Greg Fischer | Mayoral Candidate, Louisville, Ky. (D) – When Greg Fischer announced in late September that he would make his administration “the most open, honest and transparent in the nation,” he probably wasn’t expecting anyone to take him to task on that promise before he got elected. A few short weeks later, citizen watchdogs and even the local media were raising concerns about an emerging ‘pay-to-play’ scandal in which Fischer allegedly offered “a position of influence in city government” in exchange for the endorsement of a third party opponent who quit the race.

Vince wants big government to raise D.C.'s kids until they're completely dependent adults.

9. Vince Gray | Mayoral Candidate, Washington, D.C. (D)According to Gray’s campaign website, “We need a mayor who will focus on the entire birth-to-24 education process.” If you think that sounds like another big government cradle-to-the-grave entitlement program, you’re right! Gray’s education plan includes all of the trendy code words you’ve come to expect from “community organizers” like President Obama and ‘progressive’ leaders like House Speaker Pelosi who think they can solve all of our problems, even if we don’t want their help! Want a “community buy-in” with “community as a part of the solution” to your child’s educational pursuits? How about making learning “sustainable?” Let’s not forget that everyone’s going to be “valued and empowered!” And, top it all off with some “accountability” and Gray claims there’ll be no more “bureaucracy” in D.C. Public Schools. But first, you must elect Gray so you can see what’s really in his education plan.

Mahan is a 'go along to get along' big government bureaucrat who can't be trusted to legislate in the people's best interests.

10. Patricia Mahan | Mayor, City of Santa Clara, Calif. (D) – Mayor Mahan has remained silent on Santa Clara County’s recently enacted ordinance banning toys in children’s Happy Meals, but the fact remains that parents residing in her city remain affected by the county’s nanny state crackdown on their freedom to determine what their children consume. According to the City of Santa Clara’s website, “Santa Clara is a family oriented and business friendly city, with an award-winning ethics program and a commitment to fostering public trust.” If Mahan won’t stick-up for families and businesses that are being treated unfairly in her city, then she must support nanny state bureaucrats like Supervisor Ken Yeager who feel entitled to dictate how and what parents feed their own children.

NSLF’s Top 10 Least Wanted in U.S. Senate

Editor’s Note: Candidates appear in no particular order.

"Do the 'robot' for me one more time, Barry!"

"Do the 'robot' for me one more time, Barry!"

1. Patty Murray (D-Wash.) – “What’s good for the goose is good for the gander,” says Murray, but only if it’s her gander and you’re willing to play nice with this big government bureaucrat. In 2009, she threatened Senate colleagues to fund the now infamous $223 million Alaskan “Bridge to Nowhere” — a favor for her friend Sen. Ted Stevens (R-Alaska) — or else she’d make it difficult for them to waste taxpayers’ millions in their own states on their own pork barrel projects.

"So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, goodbye!"

"So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, goodbye!"

2. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) – For some strange reason, the Rolling Stone’s song “Start Me Up” comes to mind when thinking about good old Harry. Let’s all sing together, especially if you’re a Nevadan: “I’ve been running hot. You’ve got me ticking gonna blow my top.” Why? In Nevada alone, unemployment is at 14 percent and foreclosure rates are five times above the national average. His solution: Grab $57 million in taxpayer funds to pay-off defaulted mortgages in his state. Better watch out for your job, too, because he thinks unemployed American citizens should compete with illegal aliens for whatever jobs still exist.

"Do you think we can re-unite on Dancing with the Stars?"

"Do you think we can re-unite on Dancing with the Stars?"

3. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) – Babs doesn’t think American parents are responsible enough to raise their own children, so she’s pushing the Obama Administration to ratify a United Nations treaty that would empower foreign crackpots and quacks to make decisions about how our nation’s children should be raised, disciplined, and educated. One provision of the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child states, “A child’s ‘right to be heard’ would allow him (or her) to seek governmental review of every parental decision with which the child disagreed.” So, asking Little Johnny to take out the trash could result in a U.N. tribunal determining the legal merits of your request versus his so-called ‘rights.’ Brilliant, Babs! There are some nice men in white coats awaiting your arrival.

"I love it when you talk dirty politics with me!"

"I love it when you talk dirty politics with me!"

4. Russ Feingold (D-Wis.) — “There’s only thing worse than big government and that’s big government owned by special interests,” Feingold told the Wisconsin Democratic Convention in June. Guess what? He’s taking in special interests’ money hand over fist in his current campaign alone, making him worse than … himself! And, let’s not forget about a little law he passed in 2002 commonly known as the ‘Incumbent Protection Act’ to silence opponents of big government career politicians in election years.

Is there a cereal for losers, too?

Is there a cereal for losers, too?

5. Blanche Lincoln (D-Ark.) – Lincoln claims that she’s “saving our children” with the $4.5 billion allocated to her Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, but chances are you’re still packing lunches for Little Johnny (or, Jane) while other kids are eating for free, courtesy of taxes taken out of you job wages. Quit the job and maybe your kid(s) will eat for free, too! And, that’s just how big government bureaucrats like Lincoln want it – them taking care of you and your kid(s) from the cradle to the grave.

"You remind me of a younger Arlen Specter!"

"You remind me of a younger Arlen Specter!"

6. Charlie Crist (I-Fla.) – “I’ve never voted for a new tax in my life, and I only signed one, and that was on cigarettes, so who cares,” remarked Crist in a July interview with the Wall Street Journal. Who cares? Well, for starters, how about every American citizen who is still free to purchase and smoke cigarettes! Crist seems to think taxpayers who smoke don’t matter, and taking their hard-earned money is proper punishment for a lifestyle decision he opposes.

"Show me how bad you want my old seat!"

"Show me how bad you want my old seat!"

7. Alexi Giannoulias (D-Ill.) – Here’s what President Obama says about Giannoulias: “Alexi’s my friend. I know his character. You can trust him. You can count on him.” Well, back in 2004, Alexi was a loan officer for his family’s bank when it leant $20 million to Chicago mobsters hard hit by the recession. Alexi joins a growing list of FoBs (Friends of Barry) that Americans can’t afford to trust, much less elect to represent their best interests in the U.S. Senate.

"A vote for me is a vote for Nancy Pelosi!"

"A vote for me is a vote for Nancy Pelosi!"

8. Paul Hodes (D- N.H.) – Hodes spends money like it’s nobody’s business, including American taxpayers. On Sept. 15, he told his Facebook followers, “I will fight to create and keep jobs right here in New Hampshire and to end the wasteful spending and reckless policies in Washington that have left our hard-working men and women in the dust.” Those are tough words coming from a guy who has voted lockstep with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to make it nearly impossible for businesses nationwide to afford to create jobs and hire new workers.

"Joe's gonna do to you what I did to New Yorkers - control your appetites and everything in-between."

"Joe's gonna do to you what I did to New Yorkers - control your appetites and everything in-between."

9. Joe Sestak (D-Pa.) – For starters, you have to be suspicious of any politician who has the cross-party blessing of New York City’s Nanny-in-Chief Michael Bloomberg. Next, Sestak tells us, “I don’t just give a cute slogan and say cut government, cut taxes. Yes, we all would like that. It’s about effective government. Tell us what you’d cut. I’ll stand up to my own party and to any special interest group. I served this nation. My career is over. This is a passion to do what’s right in service to this country one more time.” Hmm. Was bailing out Wall Street, then buying stock in Bank of America (BoA), and then voting for a second bailout of America’s banks, including BoA, “right” for helping taxpayers or your stock portfolio recover from economic collapse?

Done kissing babies on the campaign trail, Jack turns to horses to win their votes.

Done kissing babies on the campaign trail, Jack turns to horses to win their votes.

10. Jack Conway (D-Ky.) — Conway adamantly refuses to file a lawsuit to repeal Obamacare in W.V. because he doesn’t want to “waste” taxpayer dollars on something that the majority of his state’s citizens didn’t want to waste their money on in the first place. Also note that he has vowed to eliminate the ‘filibuster’ in Congress because he says opponents of Obama, Pelosi and Reid’s big government agenda are always making a fuss about nothing and wasting everyone’s time in the process.

HONORABLE MENTION:

Joe tries to prove that the stimulus is working for West Virginians. Again, he's the only one who believes it.

Joe tries to prove that the stimulus is working for West Virginians. Again, he's the only one who believes it.

11. Joe Manchin (D-W.V.) – Manchin said in February that the stimulus bill would “make a big difference in the job market.” West Virginia’s unemployment rate peaked at 10.9 percent that month, dropped down to 8.5 percent in May and has been steadily on the rise ever since, thanks to porkulus funds being flushed down the toilet, literally, in his state. According to Gov. Manchin’s “WEST VIRGINIA STIMULUS/AMERICAN RECOVERY ACT INFORMATION” webpage, “[M]any of the details of the Recovery Act are still being determined both on the federal and state level.” That’s big government talk for, “We still don’t have a clue, but our intentions are really good.”

Is Your Rep Whipped by Pelosi?

From The National Republican Trust PAC:

THE PELOSI INDEX analyzes and tracks every member of Congress’ true voting record and details how often these self proclaimed moderates vote to support Pelosi’s radical transformation of America.

Lawmakers of both parties will be forced to think twice before voting in favor of any new radical proposal Nancy Pelosi forces onto the House floor. There is no place for them to hide and the liberal media cannot protect them from their true voting record.
