Sanity prevails?

Hi. I'm black! links to this article in Money magazine, discussing a bill in committee right now that would bar lawsuits against the fast food industry for causing obesity.

The [US Chamber of Commerce] came out in support of a bill sponsored by Rep. Ric Keller, R-Fla., that would bar lawsuits against food companies whose products are in compliance with existing laws and regulations. The measure, dubbed the "Personal Responsibility in Food Consumption Act," is currently before the House Judiciary Committee.

Think the Trial Lawyers will have their bought-and-paid-for Democratic apparatchiks filibuster THIS bill, too? Of course, that is assuming it even makes it to the Senate.
