Change We Can Believe In, continuing

From CQ:

"House Passes Sweeping Food Safety Bill

On its second try, the House passed a sweeping food safety bill that would create new traceability requirements for the food supply chain and strengthen facility inspections."

Here's a big surprise:

"Republicans still withheld their support.

“This bill would go too far in trying to produce food from a bureaucrat’s chair in Washington,” complained (the Agriculture committee's) ranking Republican, Frank D. Lucas of Oklahoma."

Think we would have gotten this bill through a Republican congress?
