    "But new legislation signed by President Barack Obama in July is set to roll back stricter labeling laws in states like Connecticut and Vermont, replacing them with a less stringent federal labeling requirement.

    Blumenthal told a crowd of about 20 people at the farmers market that he will fight federal preemption of state labeling laws and plans to introduce legislation to repeal that provision in the next session.

    “Consumers can vote with their feet and their pocketbook even if their elected representatives are not voting as they would like,” Blumenthal said. “Every survey of public opinion shows that the American people want this information.”

    Can't keep track of everything - just goes to show that Obama is a tool of big business - just like Bill Clinton was.
