House of Representatives could vote to purge Obamacare of its calorie-count regulation
The Obamacare calorie-count rule that applies to the mom-and-pop pizza shop in your hometown is on the chopping block, with the House of Representatives set to vote to roll back the big-government regulation.
Obamacare, as it stands, requires the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) ensure that restaurants and other outlets selling food print calorie counts. The FDA has also made it a felony to break the calorie count rules.
“Few people realize ObamaCare’s tentacles extend all the way into your favorite corner pizza shop, even making an error in posting calorie counts a felony. Congress now has the opportunity to take a small slice out of this terrible law,” Jeff Stier, senior fellow at the National Center for Public Policy Research and head of its Risk Analysis Division, said Monday.
“The FDA’s reckless implementation of the calorie-count rule makes the launch of healthcare.gov look seamless by comparison,” Stier added.
