Supermarkets cry foul as FDA proposes new food labeling rule under ObamaCare

More government addicts.  The two stupid things about this law?  1) Nutritional value on salad bars?  By there very definition, the salad bars are nutritional.  2) Since the salad bars are generally self-serve, the portions would vary all over the place.  Even if they aren't, the portions are next to impossible to convert to the actual nutritional value.

But, hey, why am I complaining?  Everyone voted for O'bama.  This is what the People wanted!

Supermarket owners argue a pending federal food-labeling rule that stems from the new health care law would overburden thousands of grocers and convenience store owners -- to the tune of $1 billion in the first year alone.

Store owner Tom Heinen said the industry's profit margins already are razor thin. "When you incur a significant cost, there is no way that that doesn't get passed on to the customer in some form," he said.

BTW, blogging is still light.  Hopefully, next week it will pick up.
