But they have time to attack energy drinks such as Red Bull:
From The Hill:
Democrats in the Senate want energy drink companies to stop marketing their products to children, a trend they likened to covert marketing once used by the cigarette industry.Does Red Bull advertise on Nick Jr.?
"We were all veterans of the tobacco wars,” Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) told a Senate panel on Wednesday. "Remember when the tobacco companies used to tell us 'Oh we're not interested in kids'? We knew better. We knew if they could get them hooked early on it would become an addiction and one hard to break. We're getting the same runaround from these energy drink companies. They are openly advertising to kids and denying it."
Illinois voters have the chance to toss Durbin out of Washington next year. Businessman and West Point grad Doug Truax is seeking the Republican nomination for the Senate. Click here to visit his Facebook page. Click here to contribute to his campaign.
