WASHINGTON: The Bush administration said Tuesday it will fight to keep meatpackers from testing all their animals for mad cow disease.Oh my God.
A beef producer in the western state of Kansas, Creekstone Farms Premium Beef, wants to test all of its cows.
Larger meat companies feared that move because, if Creekstone should test its meat and advertised it as safe, they might have to perform the expensive tests on their larger herds as well.
This Kansas company wants to voluntarily test its product. The Bushies say no because it will raise expectations among the unwashed masses that their meat should be safe. Testing can’t be tolerated; it might result in greater expense to large meat producers because they won’t be able to sell bad meat. Thank goodness for the Bush administration which is always there to look out for the big guy.
Worst. President. EVER. And just under two years to go.
