FDA to Ruin Future July 4th Festivities With New Trans-Fat Ban

Fourth of July

This weekend, families all across America will celebrate America’s independence with fireworks, swimming pools, friends, family, libations, hamburgers and hot dogs, and a whole host of foods. However the government is likely going to make that more difficult for future holidays as new regulations by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), to ban artificial trans fats, could have an enormous impact on taxpayers, the economy and what choices individuals make when it comes to what to eat not just on the 4th of July, but every day.   This new regulation is a clear government over reach and in poor taste.  Will donuts and fried chicken become illegal and considered contraband?  There are several problems with what the FDA is doing, and regardless of any good intentions the agency may or may not have, another regulation is absolutely not the answer to any concerns over the safety of trans fats. The first problem is that at the core, individuals can make their own choices about what food products they want to put in their body, as opposed to an outright ban that prevents people from making that choice  Taxpayers will be hit with an enormous cost as the FDA bureaucracy Is expanded

Small businesses are undoubtedly the backbone of our economy. We would all agree that more must be done to foster their growth. However, when misguided government efforts to do so lack the appropriate oversight and rules, a few bad acting corporate entities will exploit flawed policies and line their pockets with taxpayer-funded dollars.

Ergenomics 101

Satellite provider Dish Network exemplified this when it took advantage of a program designed to help small business win coveted spectrum in a recent auction held by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Dish has an 85-percent financial interest in Northstar Wireless and SNR Wireless, two companies that didn't exist until a few months before the auction. Because they have little to no revenue, they qualified as small businesses under the FCC's Designated Entity (DE) program and got a 25-percent bidding credit. They outbid major competitors on countless occasions, and Dish ultimately won about half of the licenses up for grabs – more than $13 billion worth, with a more than $3 billion discount, courtesy of taxpayers. Only AT&T spent more
