Obamacare’s Food Police: The Provision No One is Talking About
The Daily Sheeple
November 16th, 2013
By now, most people are aware of the insurance-based pain Obamacare is inflicting on Americans. The marketplace website is a failure of such ridiculous proportion that it is almost comical. The “Affordable” Care Act is proving to be anything but affordable, with many would-be consumers experiencing sticker shock over the sky-high premiums, co-pays, and deductibles. To add insult to injury, a lot of us won’t be able to “keep our plan” or “keep our doctor” as we were promised – no less than 29 times by Obama himself.
But there is a provision of Obamacare that has either been forgotten or neglected by the media amid the flurry of coverage.
That provision includes laws for menu and vending machine labeling requirements.
Section 4205 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act requires restaurant chains with 20 or more locations to disclose the caloric content of menu items to their customers.
Naturally, this is the FDA’s project, and finalized plans for the implementation of the regulations are in the works.
