Senator Rand Paul on FDA: “They’re Coming After Your Doughnuts!” (Video)
Rand Paul told an audience at The Charleston Meeting in South Carolina on Monday.
The popular conservative warned, “They’re coming after your doughnuts!”
Let them try!
The Examiner reported:
Sen. Rand Paul warned Americans that the federal government is targeting doughnuts, the latest example of the oppressive nanny state in America.
“They’re coming after your doughnuts!” the Kentucky Republican said, referring to the Food and Drug Administration decision to ban trans fats.
Paul added that if the FDA was banning trans fats, the employees of the agency should be forced to get healthy themselves.
“I say we should line every one of them up. I want to see how skinny or how fat the FDA agents are that are making the rules on this,” Paul said.
Paul’s remarks came during a speech at the The Charleston Meeting in South Carolina Monday night.
Paul suggested that if FDA officials didn’t have the recommended body mass index, they should be forced to exercise.
