Waxman at it again – protecting you from vitamins

After another examination of your sphincter, serial assclown Henry Waxman (D-CA) has decided that you need more government protection – this time from the Vitamin and Food Supplement industry. (story here) Waxman, who suffers from a permanent and debilitating case of Rectal-Cranial Inversion, knows that without government protection, we stupid taxpayers would simply implode. Can we ever thank this man enough?

(NaturalNews) Of all the sneaky tactics practiced in Washington D.C., this recent action by Congressman Henry Waxman (D-CA) is one of the most insidious: While no one was looking, he injected amendment language into the Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2009 (H.R. 4173) that would expand the powers of the FTC (not the FDA, but the FTC) to terrorize nutritional supplement companies by greatly expanding the power of the FTC to make its own laws that target dietary supplement companies.

This is a little-known secret about the FTC and the nutritional supplements business: The FTC routinely targets nutritional supplement companies that are merely telling the truth about their products. Some companies are threatened by merely linking to published scientific studies about their products.

Read the whole thing with a grain of salt – it was published by an industry journal.

The people of California should be ashamed of themselves for foisting this douchebag on the taxpayers of America every two years.
