Last night, Bill Maher did a funny “New Rules” segment about the Republican party’s “fondness for axing both country-of-origin meat labeling and the estate tax…” He talked about House Republicans pushing “for a measure that would ban meat producers from including country-of-origin information regarding their products.” Maher wondered “how such a law could be phrased as a benefit to consumers.”
Maher suggested that the party’s new mantra should be “Eat shit and die.” He said the new regulation was about shielding corporations from people – not saving people from corporations. Maher asked, “How do you write that law in a way that explains that law is good for people? What do you name it, the ‘Freedom From Information Act?’

Maher also had a few words to say about Senator James Inhofe of Oklahoma.

“Remember this a*shole?” Maher said before displaying a picture of Inhofe and explaining that Inhofe threatened to convene hearings he said would counter NASA’s “bias” regarding climate change research.
“Yes, we need to balance the facts with the anti-facts,” Maher said sarcastically. “Because we’re the United States of You Don’t Wanna Know.”
