about this unconstitutional new law that states chain restaurants will be forced to disclose the fat, sodium, and calories for all their meals. First of all this is not the federal governments job to be doing. Maybe the states can do something like this but certainly not the federal government.
Then I read the really unconstitutional thing. The FDA is going to be writing the requirements. Now I’m looking at article 1 section 1 paragraph 1 of the constitution and I don’t see anywhere in there that the FDA has any authority at all to be making law. It basically states that ALL lawmaking power is in the CONGRESS. The FDA is once again violating our most basic rights of representation. We don’t get to vote for the FDA so they are completely unaccountable to us.
Then as I read further I find out that this was snuck in through the unconstitutional health care bill. Nothing about this is legal. These government mental midgets can’t even make it past the very first article of the constitution before they violate it. I just hope the people of Iowa confront their Sen. Tom Harkin for hiding this in the 3,000 page healthcare bill and hold him accountable for hiding an unconstitutional law within a unconstitutional law. He truly is not fit to serve in the senate. He violated his oath to uphold the constitution twice in one bill. I wonder how many other times he’s done something like this.
Congressman that are not lazy spineless jellyfish could stop this with using article 1 section 9 paragraph 7. Just don't appropriate the money for the FDA to write the rules and regulations or enforce them. Starve the FDA to death. Force them to stop regulating businesses out of business.
Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny. Thomas Jefferson
