We have a Democratic President now.

The FDA functions under the Executive Branch of government (though in fairness, it depends on Congress for funding, as does everyone else).

It's about 17 years too late in this case, but removing that 'expedited' approval process sounds like a good move for our Democratic President Obama and his appointee Michael Taylor in order to undo the 'business-friendly' mistake made by former Democratic President Clinton...

...or y'know, we could just blame Republicans and then rally unquestioningly around the next President Clinton, and then wonder why so little changes for the better, ever.
