A candidate for state senate from Illinois has pointed out some very interesting things about the Health Insurance Deform Act:

We are going to be gifted with a health care plan that we are forced to purchase, and fined if we don’t,” Bellar continues, “signed by a president who smokes, with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn't pay his taxes, by a government which has already bankrupted Social Security and Medicare, all to be overseen by a surgeon general who is obese, and financed by a country that’s broke.
More or less, Professor Bellar points out what Dr. Kenneth Cooper has been pointing out for decades; that if people would simply eschew tobacco, get a bit of exercise, and have a basically decent diet (fellow Wal-Mart shoppers, I'm talking to you!  And me!), we could cut medical spending by about half with no change in the current system.

Think of this absurdity this fall when you vote.  Please, or else we may well end up like Greece.
