Wait until the Tea Partiers find out about this. It turns out that our government not only regulates the quality of food available in the USA through the heavy handed tactics of the FDA and USDA, but they even offer subsidies to poor people to help them buy food using something commonly referred to as "food stamps"! The sneaky bastards haven't bothered to pass a mandate requiring us to buy food because they know that we will die if we don't eat. Don't be fooled. This is a de facto mandate! The food and beverage industry, including restaurants, is nearly 10% of our GDP and it has been taken fully taken over by our socialist government (circa 1962). No word on whether Republicans will support a repeal.
