183 House Republicans just voted against resuming food safety inspection

H.R. 265 would have provided funding for agriculture, rural development, food stamps, and the Food and Drug Administration.

President Donald Trumpís shutdown is days from breaking the record for the longest in U.S. history, and its harmful impacts are already being felt by millions of Americans. One of the consequences of the partial shutdown is that the Food and Drug Administration has stopped doing most of its food safety inspections ó just weeks after a major E. coli outbreak hit the nationís romaine lettuce supply.

To address this crisis, the House of Representatives passed a bill on Thursday that would reopen the small portions of the government that are responsible for agriculture, food safety, and rural development. The legislation, H.R. 265, was approved by a 243 to 183 vote. But just 10 Republicans joined the Democratic majority in support of the bill, while the remaining 183 Republicans voted against it.

9. 10 Republicans voted with the Democrats

Why isn't his bipartisan vote being trumpeted to the skies? When the Senate boxed in some luckless Democrat like Joe Manchin or Claire McCaskill, and forced a vote on a bill that one or the other of them had to vote for, the media couldn't get over how wonderful all the bipartisanship was. They'd shove a microphone Manchin's or McCaskill's face and force them to declare how delicious that turd they just had to eat was.

But 10 Republicans crossing the aisle, voting with the Democrats for the undisputed good of the country? The American people want safe, wholesome food, right? Where are the media chuckleheads celebrating? No, they're too wrapped up in the latest manufactured distraction.
