    Do you guys think this is right? Do you think this is another example of too government control? Or, are they helping us?

    Section 4205 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) says companies with 20 or more restaurants or vending machines must disclose nutrition content for standard menu items, and that for vending machines in particular, the company “shall provide a sign in close proximity to each article of food or the selection button that includes a clear and conspicuous statement disclosing the number of calories contained in the article.” FDA Says it Will Take Vending Machine Owners an Extra 14 Million Hours a Year to Comply with Obamacare Calorie Mandate | CNSnews.com

    I strictly count calories - and then I eat them.

    So if one has a successful restaurant and wishes to add locations, it would make sense to stop at 19.

    Less growth.

    Less jobs created.
