A letter from the FDA to General Mills, the makers of Cheerios, said the company’s advertising makes “unauthorized health claims” which means the cereal should be regulated as a drug. As a result, the FDA declared that Cheerios “may not be legally marketed with the above claims in the United States without an approved new drug application.” The government agency added that “enforcement action may include seizure of violative products and/or injunction against the manufacturers and distributors of violative products.”
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) will not give the public a week to review the final text of a health-care reform bill before it is voted on later this year.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D.-Nev.) has also declined to commit to giving the public a week to read and consider the final health-care bill.
At her press briefing on Thursday, Pelosi was asked whether the health-care bill would be handled differently than the stimulus bill, which came up in February. The 1,071-page final text of that bill was posted on the House Appropriations Committee’s Web site late on a Thursday night and then voted on the next day.

The Republicans were essentially threatened and terrorized against voting for revenue. Now [some] are facing recalls. They operate under a terrorist threat: “You vote for revenue and your career is over.” I don’t know why we allow that kind of terrorism to exist. I guess it’s about free speech, but it’s extremely unfair.
