Are we no longer going to be able to use the phrase, “he is the salt of the earth?” Not if Obama and his over-reaching intruding government have anything to say about it.
The American public is tired of the gig government Nanny state and want government out of their private lives. So they say in the most recent Rasmussen poll where 55% of Americans oppose government limits on salt and state it’s none of the FDA’s business.
Several public health groups are urging the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to set new federal standards for the amount of salt Americans eat, but most adults don’t like the idea.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that just 33% of Americans think the government should set limits on how much salt Americans can eat. Most adults (55%) disagree and don’t think it’s any of the FDA’s business. Another 12% are not sure.
77% of adults surveyed stated that they already monitor what they eat. However, the government reduction of an individuals salt intake goes to the larger issue … WHAT BUSINESS IS IT OF THE GOVERNMENT WHAT YOU EAT!!! Is Obama and the FDA going to send the IRS out after you if you eat too much salt? Are they going to fine you and without your tax return if at your weekly, mandatory doctor visits your test results come back high for sodium. Of course you will have had to have waited in line for hours and be made to prove you have insurance or suffer the wrath of Obamacare.
Once against the Obamacare Nanny, socialism agenda is on the wrong side of the issue. Go figure.
The majority of Republicans and adults not affiliated with either major political party oppose FDA restrictions on salt, but Democrats are are almost evenly divided.
When is “big government” going to keep out of individuals private matters? Is salt the new tobacco? What is next peanut butter, spam, cereal, _____, (fill in the blank).
