Republicans Against Limiting Kids' Unhealthy Food Ads
Mmm, tastes like diabetes.

The Huffington Post reported on this dilemma July 6, explaining that in response, the GOP are "attempting to delay the guidelines by including a provision in next year's Federal Trade Commission budget that would require the government to study the potential costs and impacts of the guidelines before implementing them."
