Posted on 11/14/2012 2:59:02 PM PST by ColdOne
Time for Chicago's vending machines to chip up or chip out.
Mayor Rahm Emanuel said Wednesday he's cracking down on the caloric content of vending machines in city buildings and plans to replace them all with healthy vending by next year.
A proposed ordinance, to be introduced this week, will lay out plans for the new machines and detail guidelines on fat, sugar and calorie content starting in January 2013.

Keep electing these a-holes, America...
Ah well, those who are killed in Chicago will have lower body mass..make it easier for the coroners to lift them..
What Chicago really needs is some crack and pot vending machines to put the drug gangs out of business.
less fat make the crematorium less likely to have a fire,too!
It’s not about fat. It’s about control - R. Limbaugh.
I guess he solved all that gun violence with that ammo tax so now he can move on to more mundane things.
hahahahaha! You can’t make this stuff up!
The deep doo-doo that Chicago is in and this is what he does?
Reminds me of the busy game I had kiddo do when I cooked. Sort the different beans into the egg carton slots.
It was useless work but he thought he was doing something important.
I guess this is a *sort* show for the residents of Chicago. It just looks like he’s doing something.
I honestly thought this was “Semi-Satire” at first.
Who in their right mind would think THIS is the first concern of people living there...?
THIS is how Chi-Town got screwed up —by idiots like this.
Rahm used to claim his finger got cut off in the head of a NEGEV TANK BATTLE, btw....I’m serious. He cut it off in a meat slicing machine at Arby’s.
That sounds MADE UP, right? Nope.
In the HEAT of a tank battle in the Negev Desert when he was (very briefly and marginally) in the IDF in Israel.
Arby’s was his summer job, actually.
HELLUVA IDEA, frog!
Hey Rahm, you loudmouthed little fa**ot.....people are far more likely to get gunned down by homie in your pathetic excuse for a “city” than die from eating sugary treats, you freakin’ moron.
God forbid you address reality, Democrat.
Who does he think he is, the Mayor of New York?
no I knew he cut it off at a Arby’s.
Do the healthy snacks come with free condoms? or are these municipal toadies just another bunch of misogynists pursuing there never-ending war on women?
So now city workers will have to go out to get their high calorie snacks. Less time working and more time going out to get snacks.
Sounds like a way to improve city worker productivity.
You know what? The world is on fire, the economy is going to pot and Chicago is the murder capital that makes Kandahar look peaceful, but the biggest worry on “Rahmbo’s” mind is Coke machines. Folks, we got a real winner here. /sarc>
Lots of good eating healthy does when you ARE MURDERED IN THE STREET.
No, that would be too good to be true. ;)
Stupid free people. Just don’t know who’s boss.
I’ve been in the vending business for twelve years- they will end up with no vending machines at all (unless they actually pay someone to have them in there, just to save face). A vending company can’t make a profit trying to sell things that nobody will buy.
We’ve tried to sell this stuff at various times over the years, and ninety percent or more of it just sits there and goes out of date.
I cringe every time someone asks me “why don’t you put some healthy stuff in there?”. My reply is always the same- I have to make a living!
Maybe his next move is to force the thousands of armed drug thugs to sell low-fat crack and meth - you know, for health reasons.
This is the goal of what the non-elite American worker is supposed to look like during the next four years. Nice and lean with no body fat. Also incapable of fighting back.
But at least Rahm the Ballerina is taking on vending machines.
Yup....I am in the business of selling to vend operators....
All of my customers hate the “ healthy vend “ being forced upon them....
Very few of these type items sell...
Nah, licensed and regulated retailers will get that job done - just as licensed and regulated retailers of the addictive mind-altering drug alcohol put the rumrunners out of business.
