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.
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.
