Finding out what’s in it: Obamacare includes absurd regulations that will cost the vending machine industry millions.
Around 457 pages into Obamcare, section 4205 stipulates “the vending machine operator 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.” This new mandate will cost the vending machine industry an estimated $25.8 million initially and an additional $24 million for every subsequent year.
Expect some companies to go out a business because of this craziness.
