Hillary gets it

Hillary Clinton totally understands that offering universal health care means the government can tell you how to live your life.
As for ways to reduce pressure on the overburdened health care system, she said she could envision using "carrots and maybe a few sticks" to motivate people to lose weight and make other behavioral changes that could help...She didn't directly address questions of whether smokers or obese people should pay more for health care but said as president she would use the "bully pulpit" to encourage healthy lifestyle choices, particularly among young people.

Too bad she's got this fantastic understanding of the implications of government-provided health care, and she's still in favor of it. Oh, yeah, I forgot - she's insanely power-hungry. And thinks she can run each of our lives better than we could possibly do it ourselves. That explains it.

I can't imagine that the families perpetually dependent on welfare who don't think anyone should tell them they have to go get a job are going to look kindly on being told they have to shave a few pounds.
