cattle down

In case you are wondering, when the Republican USG regulates industry, it is for the benefit of industry not consumers.

Now USDA is finally agreeing to ban the introduction of "downer" cattle into the food chain only because of the outcry and some video snuck out of a slaughterhouse. This will reduce the prospects of you and I getting mad cow disease from a burger - but the beef industry fought this sensible step long and hard. And the GOP supported industry over the rest of us because, frankly, profits are more important than you developing a sponge-like brain and dieing after eating beef from a cow that should not have been slaughtered for meat.
