Some Iowa Republicans believe the Government should have the power to tell stores what type of eggs to sell. We call that a mandate!
If signed into law by the Governor, this would only effect stores which accept WIC (Women Infants, and Children) - a supplemental nutrition program. If a store chose to sell eggs from cage-less chickens, they would also be forced to sell regular eggs.
The argument is being made that if you choose to be a part of this Government program then the Government can tell you what you can and cannot sell. If this was California, I might believe it, but this is Republican-controlled Iowa!
So what do you think?
