    I'm all for more choices for consumers, the only problem is that the government is not going to expand your choices.

    I certainly don't see the food business doing it.

    What? You go down the cereal aisle and you have 50 choices of cereals to buy. Try picking out a can of soup from the hundred varieties on the shelf. It's exhausting. Forty different brands of bread in the store each with three or four different varieties.

    You have choices. It's up to you to make the ones that are good for you.

    And they are all mostly overloaded with sodium.

    But not all of them. Try picking one that isn't once in a while.

    Or here's a ca-ca-ca-crazy idea: buy a vegetable from the produce stand and cook it yourself. Sodium problem solved.

    Then honestly, you're not paying attention.

    Maybe if fat ****ing Americans weren't so ****ing fat....

    Are we to expect "Sarah Gravy Legs" and "Joe Six Pack" to set the tone for a somewhat healthy eating routine for their little ones?

    Hey America: Don't blame Washington. Blame yourselves. Then maybe.... just maybe Washington wouldn't have another form of ammo in which to enact legislation aimed to "help".

    The eating habit's for a rather large portion (the majority IMHO) of this entire nation is nothing short of embarrassing. Congratulations!
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Hey you tried to pick on that you thought was low in sodium yesterday, remember the bread where per slice there was 170 mgs of sodium.

    I'm sitting here looking at Oroweat (owned by Bimbo Bakeries) double fiber no high fructose corn syrup english muffins. Sounds pretty healthy huh?

    Well the sodium content per serving is 320mgs. That certainly is not advertised.

    I'm 5' 10" 160 lbs with heart disease. My life expectancy is just outside of 5 years. It is not just fat people that are affected.

    Quite the opposite I actually read the food labels.
