Obamacare Vending Machine Mandate Expected to Cost Millions

Not even vending machines are outside the scope of Obamacare mandates. Under the bill's new labeling regulations nutrition information must be placed next to each slot of candy bars, chips, peanuts and cracker-jacks.

Around 457 pages into Obamcare, section 4205 stipulates:

 "the vending machine operator shall provide a sign in close proximity to each article of food or the selection button that includes a clear and conspicuous statement disclosing the number of calories contained in the article."

This new mandate will cost the vending machine industry an estimated $25.8 million initially and an additional $24 million for every subsequent year.

"We got to pass it to find out what's in it."  polisy   HA,  more cost to consumers,  Wonder what is next.  obma voters have to pay the same price, well maybe they can fix these machines where their food stamp cards can be used.  When a man will lie to you  he will steal from you too.  This is thief by deception.....that whole bill is nothing but that, theif by deception.

The audacity of his hope is killing us !

When are we going to say 'enough"?

Isn't it amusing...?

We have had idiots among us for 50 years, and finally I get to see other people get annoyed! How fun!

Strangely, I wasn't able to stir up any concern 20 years ago when an idiot judge put me in handcuffs, leg-irons, and a holding cell for speaking my mind in court.

"Listen up judge! No one loves my sons more than I do. You guys certainly don't! I have asked for the return of my sons every time I have set foot in a courtroom.  I didn't want a "no-fault" divorce, and I certainly didn't want my sons taken from me in the first place..."

"Mr. Hinds, calm down and stop pointing at the court. I'll cite you for contempt."

""Contempt of court? I have seen nothing but "contempt of Russ" in every court I have set foot in. I am not at-fault, I didn't want the divorce, and I don't want my sons raised in shack-ups and bars as they are now!..."

"Bailiff, remove Mr Hinds.."

Ah, who cares about vending machines? We have to make sure at-fault adulterous mothers get to throw away not-at-fault fathers and keep his children and income. And we need to make sure the at-fault mother and her boyfriend get free rent, welfare, free healthcare, and free babysitters and free school...

You guys are funny! ALL UPSET OVER A FEW NEW REGULATIONS!....  Har, har, har!

momma always said, stupid is what stupid dose.

These people are really sick. Then they wonder why our economy is in the toilet.


Hello, I am an angry voter! Before it is too late I feel the need to be the whistleblower! I am petitioning you to do several things:

•​Audit the Fed to enforce transparency and to stop printing money out of thin air! (I support Senator Rand Paul's positions). The Federal Reserve’s actions creates cycles of economic boom followed by economic destruction. Nowhere in human history has an endless printing of a nation’s currency produced a positive final result. “Quantitative Easing” 1,2,3,4 creates bubbles in the stock market, such as it currently lifting the Dow above 16000 before it severely crashes. America has an illusion of economy recovery because of the actions of the Federal Reserve - not a real recovery. Meanwhile, our elected officials point to the stock market and claim credit for “success”- it is a lie! Peter Schiff of Euro Pacific Capital is correct: http://www.europac.net/commentaries/bens_rocket_nowhere . The federal reserve is nothing but a Ponzi scheme stealing from the middle class, first by inflation and then deflation! We *have been* the world’s reserve currency of choice since the end of WWII, however, the federal reserve's reckless policy of financial folly has resulted in other nations moving to unseat, undermine, undercut the middleman(the U.S. dollar) by making direct agreements with nations other than the U.S.A. to eliminate the need for our currency for trade(i.e. B.R.I.C. nations. Brazil, Russia, India, China). This can be appropriately labeled as currency wars. America’s debt is 17 trillion dollars and exploding. America’s adversaries do not need to defeat us militarily, they are waiting for us to go bankrupt! As soon as the U.S. dollar is dethroned as the world’s reserve currency by a new world order, expect the value of the American dollar to crash, along with the stock market and pensioner’s 401k’s – expect the next great depression and hyperinflation! (history’s examples: Weimar Republic, Zimbabwe). Source http://www.businessinsider.com/worst-hyperinflation-episodes-in-his... . History such as the great depression eventually repeats itself, especially when we do not learn from our mistakes! Americans will need a wheelbarrow of cash to buy a loaf of bread! –AUDIT THE FED!!! Vote “NO” on the confirmation of Janet Yellen until a standalone up or down vote is held in the Senate to AUDIT THE FED! http://www.huffingtonpost.com/robert-auerbach/janet-yellen-st-louis...

•​Hold the democrat liars who sold Obamacare to the American people accountable -including the socialist, marxist, communist, fascist, "Saul Alinsky", crises creator-("never let a crises go to waste"), "boil the frog slowly"-(the American people that is!), "make it hurt"-(closing the veteran's WWII memorial while Pelosi stages an illegal immigrant rally on the mall during the shutdown on the same day!), federal deficit ballooner, phony president and his administration (what the president says and does do not match!!). - I still remember the ties Obama had to Saul Alinsky, Cloward and Piven, Reverend Jeremiah Wright and the domestic terrorist Bill Ayers! Obama is deliberately destroying the American economy, and is politically funded by the anti-American, communist, socialist, currency manipulator, billionaire George Soros! Soros bet against the British pound sterling in the 70’s and now he is preying on the collapse of the American dollar! See article: http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/14700

•​Enforce Congress and the President to live by the same laws you impose on the American people (i.e. Obamacare).

•​Impeach the president, uphold and defend the constitution and the bill of rights as it was originally written (impeaching the president and upholding defending the constitution/bill of rights are related!).

•​Call a Constitution Article V Convention of States for the purpose of limiting the power and jurisdiction of the federal government! WWW.CONVENTIONOFSTATES.COM

•​Reign in the executive branch overreach of authority and privilege! He has unconstitutionally legislated by executive order! What is the president going to do next week, month or year?? - Create and incite a national crisis as an excuse to declare martial law so he can crown himself a dictator?? What about about Obama creating the crisis of bankrupting this nation by deliberately doubling the national deficit during his presidency?! - An insidiously subversive, “trojan horse” president, politically funded by the anti-american billionaire George Soros, a known communist, socialist, currency manipulator! - Most of the democratic party is bought and paid for! http://pro.stansberryresearch.com/1310PSIEANEW/LPSIPC06/?h=true - For the preservation of American Freedoms and the American way of life IMPEACH THIS PRESIDENT NOW!

•​Hold the failures of the Bengazi scandal accountable (especially the president and Hillary Clinton).

•​Hold the NSA domestic spying on American citizens without probable cause scandal accountable (4th amendment violation).

•​Impeach Eric Holder for the Fast and Furious scandal.

• Hold the parties responsible for the IRS targeting of political opposition groups/persons

•​Oppose Amnesty for illegals (because they should not be rewarded for sneaking across our porous border) to prevent them from becoming 12 million newly minted-low information-bought and paid for entitlement-welfare-burden on the U.S taxpayer-bankrupt America democratic voters!!!

•​Oppose the president's Trans Pacific Partnership Treaty (since nobody clearly knows what is in it like Obamacare and I fear the president is selling America's sovereignty "down the river".

•​Oppose the sneaky U.N. Small Arms Treaty or any other future U.N. infringement on American sovereignty - In fact, kick the anti-American, vision of one world government U.N. out of the U.S.A.!! U.N.’s Agenda 21 is evil!

• Why has the DHS bought 1.6 billion hollow point bullets? What are they preparing for? Why has the Obama administration heavily militarized the DHS and our local police departments? Per the Geneva conventions, hollow points are illegal to use in wars between nations. The DHS must be preparing to use them against the American people! What is worse is American taxpayer dollars were use to buy these bullets! I think it is because they are the first to know just how serious America’s impending bankruptcy is and hiding it from the public!

· I am demanding the demilitarization of the "department of homeland security"!! Obama's communist domestic army! This in itself is a traitorous act against the American people! Representative Sheila Jackson Lee slipped when she suggested the words “martial law” during the federal government shutdown – If you look at her contact info on the www.house.gov website, it shows her committee assignment as “Homeland Security Judiciary” (not a coincidence)! - "When the people fear their government, there is tyranny! When the government fears the people, there is liberty!" - Thomas Jefferson

•​Increase sanctions on Iran to end their nuclear program, otherwise you will enable war to break out in the middle-east while betraying Israel.

· Get a refresher course in economics and sound fiscal policy from Scholar contributor Daniel J. Mitchell for solutions to America’s problems, then legislate based on his recommendations:

· http://danieljmitchell.wordpress.com/2011/03/03/a-laffer-curve-tuto...
· The education Mitchell posts on these websites is both free to you and priceless to our nation!!

This is my protest!! I believe we are in danger of losing our Constitutional Republic! Help me save it!

I am risking unjust reprisal to speak out, yet the consequences of remaining silent are far worse for this nation!

Just say NO to the sell-out RINO’s – (Senator Mitch McConnell, this includes you!!)

Senator Harry Reid, you have always been a sell-out, or you are a political coward, and an accomplice to the Obama administration corruption! I am calling you out on it! - “Those who will sacrifice liberty for temporary security, deserve neither, and will lose both” - Benjamin Franklin

I am an anti-progressive(democrat and republican alike), anti-liberal, anti-elitist-condescending statist-("trust us because we know what is best for you better than you do and the American people are too stupid to make wise choices for themselves") - so for example, we will impose elitist, “genius” Obamacare on the American people whether they want it or not!

I have sent a copy of this message to your fellow congressmen and news media outlets across the country, including some in your state! (I treasure the bill of rights, do you??)

Simply more of Herr Comrade COMMUNIST Obama's insane Dictator rules and regulations. Total government CONTROL is his goal!


   You are correct .... Obamacare was a lie from the beginning and will always be a lie.  It will be a changing and evolving law that will affect every American as changes are made at will by Obama......and not voted on by Congress.  We've got a totaltarian dictatorship, folks.  It is just that the American People are still snoozing.  It's wake up time!!!!

Point one:  Since when does regulation of vending machines have anything to do with so-called affordable health care?  This is just more nonsense that exerts control over peoples lives.  The packaging on the products already shows the calorie count.  Another reason to repeal this monstrosity called the ACA. 

Point two:  How many small businesses, partnerships and sole proprietors is this mandate going to force out of business?  I am sure that it could be in the millions.  This will certainly affect the economy as a whole.  All Americans need to speak up and put a stop to this.  Let's start by flipping the Senate in 2014.  I have looked at the details of the 35 races in 2014 that are up for grabs.  There are 14 incumbent GOP seats and 21 incumbent Democrat seats that will be on the ballots in 2014.  Of these, approximately 9 to 11 seats could change to GOP in a best case scenario.  More realistic projections strongly show 3 to 4 seats gained by the GOP with 6 to 7 total that are likely.  As it sits today the GOP needs 6 seats gained in order to fire Harry Reid as Senate Majority leader.  Then...with ALL of Congress in the GOP control, bills could be approved to repeal ACA over and over and over to inundate Obama with veto after veto after veto (watch the approval rating for BHO sink to an all-time low).  This is the beginning to get this overturned/repealed once and for all.

Point three:  Do we even really know if elections will happen in 2014?  If Obama sees that he will lose the Senate (which I do see happening), he could declare Martial Law, eliminate elections, and become a full-blown, Castro style Dictator.  For example, why is Obama dismissing all of the senior military officers that do not agree with him?  Why is DHS stockpiling millions and millions of rounds of ammunition?  I don't put anything past this fraud.

Whatever the case, "O" must go!  Certainly there are other ways to get rid of him, but in the meantime, We the People need to continue to push any avenue of making BHO ineffective.  We need to stop the bleeding one way or another.


    Everything you do, eat, drive, buy, live in or use, etc, etc, can be related in some way to your health.  With Obamacare in place, Obama, while Congress either stands on the sidelines or goes along, can regulate the most minute aspects of American life....that is YOUR LIFE!  This will be true because, after all, the government is regulating and to a large extent (when they impose "single payer") will be paying for it.  Therefore, it is in the interest of the government to make sure that you stay healthy, whether you like it or not.  They will do this primarily through Presidential Executive Orders and regulations issued by the Executive departments such as Health and Human Services, Environmental Protection Agency, Interior Department, Department of Education, etc, etc, etc.

Goodbye 2020: Clinton Ordered By Federal Judge To Submit To Questioning

(TeaParty.org) – Just when Hillary Clinton began hinting that she’s ready to run again in 2020, she has been ordered by a federal judge to submit to questioning about the use of her private email server to convey classified documents during her time as Secretary of State.

U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan made the order as part of a lawsuit from conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch.

“Court rules late today Hillary Clinton must answer more email questions — including key q’s about the setting up of her email system,” wrote Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton in a tweet following the ruling.

Judicial Watch 🔎 @JudicialWatch

BREAKING: Judicial Watch announced today that, following JW's court battle, U.S. District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan ruled that Hillary Clinton must answer – under oath – two additional questions on her controversial email system within 30 days.

Judicial Watch: Federal Court Ordered Hillary Clinton to Answer Additional Email Questions Under...

 (Washington, DC) –Judicial Watch announced today that U.S. District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan ruled that within 30 days Hillary Clinton must answer under oath two additional questions about her...

Tom Fitton  @TomFitton

Breaking: Court rules late today Hillary Clinton must answer more email questions -- including key q's about the setting up of her email system. Court denied our request to unseal vid depositions of Clinton aides. Great work by Michael Bekesha!

As a statement from Judicial Watch explains, the ruling is the latest development in the group’s Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, which they began to discover why former deputy chief of staff to Mrs. Clinton, Huma Abedin, was allowed to work at the State Department while also engaged in “outside employment.”

Clinton now has 30 days to answer two key questions from a list of 25 questions composed by Judicial Watch.

The questions the judge selected are:

1) “Describe the creation of the clintonemail.com system, including who decided to create the system, the date it was decided to create the system, why it was created, who set it up, and when it became operational.”

During your October 22, 2015 appearance before the U.S. House of Representatives Select Committee on Benghazi, you testified that 90 to 95 percent of your emails “were in the State’s system” and “if they wanted to see them, they would certainly have been able to do so.” Identify the basis for this statement, including all facts on which you relied in support of the statement, how and when you became aware of these facts, and, if you were made aware of these facts by or through another person, identify the person who made you aware of these facts.

This new development is huge because it means that the two critical scandals from Clinton’s time in the State Department, her private email server and the Benghazi attacks, are facing fresh scrutiny in both the legal system and the court of public opinion.

And while Clinton likely had little chance of any run in 2020, this makes it even less likely she will stand even a shred of a chance.

We’ve have got to hope and pray that at long last, this leads to the long overdue criminal charges we’ve all been waiting to see.
