Why Stop at Universal Health Care?

Why stop at universal health care? Let's give everyone free and unfettered rights to only the best in healthcare including in vitro fertilization, abortion, sex changes and re-changes, plastic and cosmetic surgery including breast aumentation and penile implants and tattoos, face peels, liposuction, mental health care, chiropractic, accupuncture, holistic care, massage therapy, spa treatments, personal saunas and hot tubs, and over the counter drugs and cosmetics. Since anyone making it across our borders is afforded the full protection of the constitution, they to are also granted all the rights and privileges of this universal health care just by being here.

Since food and a balanced diet is a part of good health care, all the foodstuffs that are unhealthy and burdening the system will be illegal or taxed heavily. Banned will be meats, saturated fats, processed grains, cane sugar, dyes and preservatives.

And bearing in mind that good mental and physical health is a product of exercise and self esteem, also provided, free of charge, will be fitness programs and classes in fashion coordinating. Since it will be a burden for everyone to keep up with the most current fashions, a generous stipend for clothing will be added to your monthly check. Perhaps, given the lack of hygiene and the poor fashion sense of so many of our citizens, the esteem of these folks may need a push. So for those folks the program will be mandatory.

Also critical to the health and well being of our citizenry is their interface with the environment. The proper management of exposure to the elements can affect such body functions as vitamin D productions, seratonin, endorphins and can also affect mental outlook, not to mention the drying effect of the sun on your skin and the risk of cancer from overexposure. In a effort to monitor and control these risks, all Americans will be entitled to affordable and tasteful housing. Programs will be developed to assess the personality and tastes as well as the health needs of each American with regard to their environmental interface and shelter arrangements. Appropriate measures for the selection of square footage and personalized decor will be enabled by a team of trained government workers to ensure both mental and physical health.

Anticipating unforeseen circumstances creating the need for future changes, all rights to manage and augment the aforementioned US Universal Health Maintenance Program will retained by the President of the US through Constitutional authority.

Then, and only then, will we be .............. free ?

Absolutely right! And, it will only cost you 70% of your paycheck and most of your civil rights.

Still sound like a good deal?

Don't laugh about this one. I think the governor of NY just added a pretty stiff tax to soda, snacks etc called the 'obese tax'. The governor of PA is considering the same. I better watch my butt. Pretty soon they'll be passing a 'short, smartass tax'.

Believe me, I'm not laughing. I stopped laughing in 1993 when Clinton was elected. I haven't laughed since then.

The obese tax is just another excuse to tax for control.

I am 100 pounds overweight. None of it is attributable to beer, soda or snacks. All of it is attributable me eating too much carbohydrates and fats in GOOD foods. I started eating more carbs in 1980. Most Americans did and have grown very fat since then. The Carter Administration and junk nutrition scientists decided that heart disease was caused by cholesterol which was caused by eating too much meat, fat and cholesterol. It was bull then and it is bull now.

Heart disease is caused by being 1) prone to it genetically and 2) being too fat (from eating the "good" carbohydrates) and thus too sedentary. Genetics however, plays the biggest role in cholesteral production and plaque formation from coronary artery lesions.
