ObamaCare May Impact Grocery Prices
In another ‘unexpected’ consequence of ObamaCare grocery prices are expected to go up. Contained within the 2000 page law is a mandate that restaurants provide nutritional information on their menus. The Food and Drug Administration took a fairly well supported idea and decided to extend this rule to supermarkets and convenience stores.
The proposed regulations will require store owners to label prepared, unpackaged foods found in salad and food bars, delis and bakeries. Grocers say that these regulations will require new and expensive nutritional data software and fear of stiff penalties for errors.
The FDA says ObamaCare just wants to help Americans live healthier lives. But maybe Americans would like to be able to buy their groceries without the government telling them what to eat.
