BEWARE !! Sneak Attacks Are Coming

Health freedom alert: Congressman Waxman sneaks anti-vitamin amendment into Wall Street reform bill

(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.

    You should probably know, if y’all weren’t dumb neocons, that the FTC regulates all trade. The sales of supplements is trade. They are not controlled substances. So why would the FDA regulate trade? Just another example of your racism at work. Any move A GENIUS, BLACK President makes get placed under a microscope for scrutiny. Too bad y’all didnt do this with that bumbling idiot lil bushie. We wouldnt be fighting two wars we dont belong in!!

    Poor Patsy- the article is about the SNEAKY EXPANSION of powers by a white “racist” dem- your usual racist rant is off target, again.

    The two wars are Obie’s now- he elected to STAY IN them for the past 17 months. If we don’t belong there- ask HIM why we’re still there. Recall- he did grab credit fast enough for the Iraq success story.

    Just doing an AGOH public service regarding the FACT-checking.
