"Tuna is safe for pregnant women, claims of mercury in fish are ludicrous."

..."insuring low-wage workers against catastrophic disability will cause the loss of nine million jobs across the country."

"Big Macs are a part of a balanced and healthy diet."

"Congress ... is seriously considering passage of a new law that would require employers to ignore AIDS infections among cooks and servers." [Source: Sourcewatch]
