Stop the Food Police!

Politicians in Springfield are about to unleash the food police on individuals and small businesses throughout the state.

The state Senate is poised to pass the Trans Fat Restriction Act, and unless you take action now, you’ll need to reserve a seat at your table for Big Brother whenever you go out to eat.

Please call your State Senator Tuesday, May 3, and demand that they oppose The Trans Fat Restriction Act. You can find their contact information by clicking here.

Shortly before the General Assembly adjourned for their Easter Break, the Illinois House passed HB 1600, The Trans Fat Restriction Act.

This bill bans the use of trans fats in all restaurants, movie theaters, businesses, and schools.

Our politicians in Springfield think you are not smart enough to plan your own diet.

Let’s not forget that these politicians belong to the very same government that advanced the notorious “food pyramid” which promoted the use of trans fats!

There is no doubt that the government got it wrong when they claimed that margarine was healthier than good old-fashioned butter — but do we really need the government dictating whether or not we are legally “allowed” to indulge ourselves with a tasty treat from time to time?

As is typical in our bureaucracy, their “expert opinions” and resulting guidelines and regulations change depending on which lobbyist is forking over the most cash.

Have you had enough of schizophrenic bureaucrats interfering with your most basic freedoms?

This is yet another power grab from an authoritarian government, and while the assault on your right to determine your own diet is bad enough, we must not discount the damage it will do to Illinois businesses.

Imagine the devastation to Illinois bakeries, restaurants, and movie theaters that are in close proximity to other states. Many of those businesses are now threatening to close up shop, move out of state, and take their jobs and decadent treats with them.

Just how far is our legislature willing to go to destroy Illinois businesses? They’ve already raised business taxes and implemented new internet sales taxes in the midst of the Great Recession, and now, they want to add insult to injury by unleashing the food police on them.

Don’t forget to call your State Senator Tuesday, May 3, and demand that they oppose The Trans Fat Restriction Act. You can find their contact information by clicking here.

Illinois Campaign For Liberty members thwarted Senator Maloney’s attempts to end Home School Freedom by keeping senator’s phones ringing off the hook, and you can kill this assault on freedom the same way!

Don’t let Illinois lawmakers dictate your food choices while chasing more of our businesses to other states!

For Liberty,

Campaign for Liberty
