"The government passed the Nutrition Labeling and Education Act (NLEA) in 1990, requiring 'most food to bear nutrition labels and prescribes their form and content. They must state, among other things, the number of calories per serving and the amounts of fat, cholesterol, sodium, and fiber.' Now, one can debate if this makes a whits worth of difference in the long run -- if people want to eat slop, by all means, eat slop, we’re just giving you information to make a choice. So I purpose doing the same for Congress." (04/14/11)
