It’s been said many times that government assistance comes with strings attached-that when you let the government do something for you, you cede control to them. That has been accelerating under our newest set of would-be “progressive” overlords, and here is the latest example.

Scoff if you will, but if they can tell people that they can’t buy soda, what can’t they tell people?
So Obama voters, how ya likin that “change?”
