The Pink Elephant
Sen. John Kerry's campaign discusses ad nauseum about skyrocketing health care costs. Of course, costs are high: Americans are fatter than ever! According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, obesity costs USA $75 billion a year. So obesity makes up a significant — and preventable — percentage of the health care expenditures.
Yet in its quest to force socialist health care upon us, Kerry-Edwards refuse to discuss how lifestyle choices (along with the high cost of malpractice insurance, and the American Medical Association’s collusion with state legislatures) jack up health care costs.
