Via the inimitable Scruggs, we find progressivism's latest craze (apparently), which your health insurer and mine has preemtively euphemized as "wellness." The background: at the last Donkle debate, Obama said that if we could "go back to the obesity rates of 1980 we could save the Medicare system a trillion dollars." Other than the failure to construct a proper if/then statement, I personally find nothing to object to. In fact, I propose that we go a step further and reduce the population to its 1980 level. We can start with the fat people. Talk about savings.
