Could you imagine a nightmare dystopia where corrupt ACORN troglodytes would be charged with monitoring your lifestyle and dietary habits on behalf of an all-powerful federal Leviathan that officially owns your very body? The statist goblins that wrote the ObamaCare bill sure can. From Fox Nation:
The health care reform bill approved by the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee (HELP) would provide federal grants to state and local governments and a national network of community-based organizations to promote healthy living and reduce disparities and to monitor peoples weight, eating, exercise habits and other individual behaviors that affect health at the community level. The language instituting the program, entitled Community Transformation Grants, is on pages 382-387 of the bill as posted on the committees Web site.
Heres the bill. From page 386:
TYPES OF MEASURES. — In carrying out subparagraph (A), the eligible entity shall, with respect to residents in the community, measure —
(i) decreases in weight;
(ii) increases in proper nutrition;
(iii) increases in physical activity;
(iv) decreases in tobacco use prevalence;
(v) other factors using community specific data from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance Survey; and
(vi) other factors as determined by the Secretary.
The appallingly corrupt and powerful Senator Chris Dodd (D-CT), best known for receiving the largest bribes from Fannie and Freddie before they crashed, confirms that ACORN could be the eligible entity that makes sure you are taking good care of the governments property by exercising properly, eating right, and so forth.
If our radical left rulers are able to impose ObamaCare, they will know there is no limit to how far they can go in indulging their totalitarian impulses.
