Congress wipes out food labeling laws

Proving once again that the Republican idea of "states rights" is nothing more than a clever marketing ploy, Congress voted Thursday to outlaw states from having food safety labeling laws. States like California passed such requirements years ago to advise consumers of foods that contain ingredients known to cause cancer.

The vote was 283-139 with 212 Republicans and 71 Democrats voting for it. As per usual, the Wisconsin delegation split along party lines.
