Real Time's Bill Maher thinks he's found the perfect slogan for the Republican party. Maher laid into Republicans for their recent vote in the House, which would remove country-of-origin labels on beef, pork and chicken sold in the U.S. during his New Rules segment this Friday.

MAHER: How do you write that law in a way that explains it's good for people? What do you name it? The Freedom From Information Act? The Don't Worry Your Pretty Little Head About It Act? I think I've found the perfect slogan for the Republican party, combining their two great goals, erasing meat labels and repealing the estate tax, and that slogan is Eat Shit And Die.


Next time you hear Republicans say they want to "protect" you from burdensome regulations, this is what they mean. But this isn't really deregulation. This is reverse regulation. Regulations are supposed to protect people from corporations, not corporations from people.

Can you help us out?
