    How did we end up deciding to go along with this?

    I mean, with the Texas Tiger in the Oval Office how is this **** allowed to happen. Bush is all about America doing its own thing , snubbin the U.N., rounding up a handpicked posse and reppin for the Red White and Blue across the globe, no way he will sign this E.U. cocksucking legislation............. right ?

    I know Hillary Clinton's a big supporter of this. Plus I'm sure all the big pharmaceutical companies are pushing for it to cause their the ones that will profit from it.

    Eh...the FDA is it's own entity.

    I "hope" that Bush, being a fitness-minded president, wouldn't go so far as to sign this bill. I mean, I'm SURE he takes vitamins.

    Then again, i don't know how this works. I don't know if he even has to give the go on this issue. The FDA can do MANY THINGS without the consent of congress and the pres.

    Hilary Clinton or Bush, the result will be the same. It amazes me that people are still amazed that beauracrats will do anything and everything, no matter how ridiculous, to increase their power. If this is something that needs Bush's approval, you can bet he'll sign it. A couple good articles.

    You're right, but I still hate Hillary Clinton

    I would "hope" Bush wouldn't make vitamins prescription only. But, it's entirely possible. Politicians are the scum of the earth.

    That depends on whether or not it needs a politician's approval. If enough people send letters to their representatives and make a stink, it could stop this. It's not likely, but it would. But in general those serving in appointed positions in government will, as you say, do as they damn well please.

    This is just my thinking. Because it would affect major companies such as GNC, Vitamin Shoppe, etc. It will be more difficult to push something to this magnitude through. The cost of healthcare is going up and there are a lot of people particulary the eldery who are already raising hell about the costs. These are the people who are ordering medication from Canada and other foriegn countries because of the high prices here. I think it would piss these same people off because many of them have chosen alternative ways such as supplementation to medicate themselves.

    This issue has more weight than ph's did b/c ph's had a negative conotation to start with. Ph's didn't have a huge audience as do the dietary (preventive health) supplement segment of the industry.

    Thank dip**** liberals for this plan. The Durbin Bill was in discussion last year but had a lot of objectors. There's a lot of money to be made with vitamins. I already e-mailed my senators but these are the same *******s who assisted in making the PH bill (Chuck Grassley and Tom Harkin) so I have little faith that they'll help out. I just got the standard "Thank you" e-mails from them thats probably automated response.

    Better stock up though but I have faith that this really doesn't have a big chance to pass. They tried this out a decade ago and got defeated. Although with socialists like Barbara Boxer and John Kerry, a ban seems much more likely than 10 years ago.

    Edit: One of the biggest objectors right now to the Dumbass bill is Orrin Hatch, a Republican senator from Utah and I think a few others.

    Due to my job I have chatted with senators and congressman, and trust me they could care less what you write.

    Hooray for liberal compassion. Everyone gets equally less freedom. Now we can look and play like this stud.

    "For some years, the pharmaceutical lobby has been successful in having the FDA tighten the screw on the nutritional products that keep many people from ill-health, whilst approving dangerous, health-damaging drugs as “treatments? (e.g. In American hospitals alone, 106,000 people die every year due to drug side-effects, whilst precisely none die from nutrition-related side-effects.)

    In fact, Doctors are now the leading cause of death in the USA – causing more deaths than cancer or heart disease, and costing over 700 lives every day."

    If this bill goes through, the pharm. companies and doctors will have enormous amounts of lawsuits against them. Many of them will file for bankruptcy within the first 2 years this bill gets passed. Everyone who takes pharm. meds will be walking test specimens. b/c of the lack of evidence whether or not the drug is safe to take.

    Just think of how many jobs will be lost over this.

    Don't expect this to go over easy.

    To make matters worse, completely off topic also, I spoke with a buddy of mine in the Navy and he tells me a "new" draft should begin this summer because of the shortage in the military.

    You know that it won't because unlike the PH/PS business, the use of vitamins and other supplements is much more widespread, and you know companies like Centrum and NOW Foods, to name a few, won't be bent over by the FDA without a fight. This is cutting into their area and their people like you said and this will be an uphill battle for the FDA...and for that I'm glad, I can't stand those pricks.

    Don't worry, its not going to get passed at any level of Congress. Vitamins are big business for all. Think about how pissed Walmart, GNC, Target, Grocery chains, Vitamin Shoppe, etc. will be. Walmart alone is worth hundreds of billions and its assured that they'll stop this.

    Its just a fantasy bill, much like the draft bill last year, also started by Democrats. Democrats suck.
