ObamaCare Regulations Require Dominos Pizza to Post 34,000,000 Signs in Each Store to Comply

They’ll be expanding each and every Dominos Pizza, just to fit in all of the signs mandated by ObamaCare.  Weasel Zippers has the story…

Via Washington Secrets:

New Obamacare regulations targeting the fast food and grocery store market that require signs detailing calorie and nutritional information on every product will force pizza makers like Domino’s to post up to 34 million different signs in every store: One for every possible pizza order.

“It’s not like a Big Mac. Pizza is customizable, there are options to factor in,” said Jenny Fouracre-Petko, legislative director for Domino’s and a member of the trade group American Pizza Community. “There are 34 million pizza combinations. We’ve done the math.”

Ditto for the grocery stores, which are shifting to providing more fresh made and baked goods, said Erik Lieberman, counsel for the Food Marketing Institute. “Consider just one fresh-baked blueberry muffin. If one is sold, you need a nutrition sign or sticker. If a half dozen are sold, a different one is required. Same if you sell a dozen.”

Well, I guess this is what happens when you pass legislation so “you can see what is in it.”

To honor this situation, I have to post the following…

Elections have consequences.

    And we are all supposed to believe that ObamaCare will do no harm to the economy. Obama and the Dems are either very stupid or they know they are destroying this country and that is all right with them.

    Too bad the car industry engineers aren’t as creative as Pizza joints. Instead of offering up rather fixed and limited car models that have to conform to some CAFE fleet standard, one might develop flexible car designs that would allow customers to pick and choose, within reasonable and wider ranges, what sort of stuff they want to go in their vehicle, much as is done with pizzas or user customizable computers and laptops. This would make the CAFE standards somewhat impossible to enforce. It might even make sense to move away from year models to a design system that would allow upgrades and updates to older models, much as is done in computers. Instead of trashing the old beater, give it some new innards, keep the stuff that works and it’s good to go another 200k. It’s nothing that capable mechanics don’t already do to some degree. However, it could be made a lot easier and less expensive, plus being a loophole that CAFE may not work well with.

    I would say this is part of the unintended consequences of Obamacare but I am not sure this was unintended at all…..

    Obama must just sit in the oval office and laugh at how stupid people are. Of course it’s intended. He wants to destroy this country.
