Menu mandates: Federal regs gone mad

Rep. John Carter
Member of Congress (R-TX)

But as then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi pointed out at the time, we would have to pass it to find out “what is in it.” Now we are finding out, much to the country’s chagrin, that in addition to massive new red tape for health care, federal regulators are seeking to take over as editors-in-chief of America’s menus.
