Another time bomb to blow away businesses in the food industry has NOW been found in the Obamacare legislation that Congress "Had to pass to know what's in it". Now virtually every food item you may buy has to have its calorie count listed. That includes every customized thing you may order like "no onions please" or "Hold the Mayo".


Even the Feds charged with enforcing this piece of crap legislation say it is impossible to enforce BUT THEY STILL PLAN ON PUTTING MORE THAN $500,000,000 FOR REGULATIONS ENFORCING IT.


Here are a few excerpts from the article and the link to read the entire article for yourself. Read it and see just how screwed up this Obamacare legislation is!

"After the flawed rollout of the Affordable Care Act, most of Washington focused on repairing and delaying the law’s most obvious problems. However, a handful of lawmakers have finally noticed one of the law’s hidden regulations: a strict calorie labeling requirement for chain restaurants, vending machines, and other food distributors. What at first appeared to be more bureaucratic but harmless government do-gooding is now proving a verifiable nightmare for small business owners and federal regulators alike."

...

"Moreover, the regulation itself is so poorly constructed that it presents unforeseen hurdles for franchisees. Pizzas, sandwiches, and burritos, among other common fast-food meals, can be custom-ordered in hundreds of combinations, and the law arguably requires restaurants to provide customers with calorie data for each. It’s also unclear whether non-traditional food retailers—for example, bookstore cafes, hotel minibars, and food trucks—will be subject to the labeling requirements. Furthermore, it’s unclear what penalties restaurateurs will face if they inadvertently fail to comply."

...

"Had the architects of the ACA done their homework, they would have realized that mandated calorie labeling is an ineffective method of fighting obesity. Instead, the FDA will create an estimated $537 million in costs for a regulation that is doomed to fail from the outset."
