    Default A rich country that is very poor

    America is considered the richest country in the world, yet on CNN they say only 1% of Food imports into America are inspected due to budget cuts in FDA. Over 70 million Americans get food poisoning as a result every year and 5,000 end up dying.

    Terrorists could easily wipe out millions of Americans through food poisoning.

    The point is if you don't inspect it you will never know when Katrina-like poisoning will reach our shores.

    It is pathetic to spend billions on Iraq worseless waste of lives when something like food imports are not protected. Simply disgusting USA policies.

    Big, what you are expecting is the responsibility of the US importer, not the federal or any other government.
