Now, there are conservatives in the media and elected conservative Republicans, Republicans as well, and I mentioned this yesterday, who are suggesting that, “Well, you know, look, Obamacare is the law of the land, and we’re law-abiding conservatives.

Every day we learn more and more about the absolute punitive oppression that is in this plan. It’s already unpopular. Well over 50% of the American people don’t want it.

The health law mandates calorie counts in most restaurants and other food-serving establishments.” Oh, yes, it does. Health care. A health care bill, which everybody thinks is about making your premium cheaper and your access to coverage better. Oh, yeah. Obamacare mandates calorie counts in most restaurants and other food serving establishments. “The AP reports the Food and Drug Administration is finding it ‘extremely thorny’ to write the specific regulations.”
Here’s another thing. Most of the regulations haven’t yet been written.

That’s why nobody really knows all that’s in this bill and what’s coming our way. “Erik Lieberman of the Food Marketing Institute, which represents retail grocery chains,” has discovered something that’s headed his way, and he says “It’s a huge problem for us.”
