Here a longer clip of the same from C-SPAN:

Maybe Steve Buyer has a been smoking of some lettuce himself? Hey Steve? How about sharing some of that good stuff with the rest of us!

... and THEN I went to Buyer's site and read this:


Washington, D.C.—The House of Representatives today passed the Senate Amendment to H.R. 1256, the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act, which gives the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authority to regulate tobacco products. The FDA is already an over-stressed and under-resourced federal agency which will now be burdened with responsibilities that goes against its core mission—ensuring the safety of our nation’s food, drugs, and medical devices—to regulate an inherently risky product. Congressman Steve Buyer’s (IN-04) mission is to improve the nation’s public health, and he believes there is better policy to help smokers quit than the Senate Amendment to H.R. 1256.

I feel SO much safer knowing that Steve Buyer is out there fighting for our safety.
