I try not to get too involved in politics in a D vs. R sorta way, but the effect of politics as usual has no interest in the welfare of the public. These numbers do not lie, and as a public we have been had. People really need to start looking at facts and turn off the talking heads who just repeat buzz words all day long.

I agree with the previous poster, I usually don’t try and get involved too much, but it’s impossible to ignore the issues. seattle chiropractor November 9, 2010 at 10:10 pm Log in to Reply While Congress was busy passing health care reform, policy-makers are reluctant to admit that many of our nation’s health problems are linked to practices subsidized by taxpayers. An American diet heavily dependent on corn and corn-derivatives is linked to obesity, coronary heart disease, high blood pressure, Type II-Diabetes, constipation, joint pain, and other ailments. The tragic irony is that government subsidizes the low-cost production of the corn-based, unhealthy foods that make many people sick. Now the Obama administration wants to give these same policy-makers responsibility for our health care. Imagine what the graph of health care costs would have looked like if obesity wasn’t a national epidemic? Leave A Comment Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
