Bieng healthy is Contraversial?

Who knew that trying to teach children to eat healthy and give healthy tips would create such a controversy. Micheal Obama who started a "let's move" campaign started by creating a garden and is now trying to tell mothers to breast feed there children, because it helps reduce childhood obesity. Now people namely Micheal Bachman who said that since the IRS now considers medical expenses as breast feeding equipment and mothers could be given a tax deduction would create a nanny state.

The IRS has a fairly broad interpretation of the term "medical expenses" in the federal tax code, including wigs, acupuncture, artificial teeth, eyeglasses, contact lenses, certain home improvements, lead-based paint removal and television equipment for the hearing-impaired as deductible expenses.

Calling this a nanny state is silly the Government gives tax deduction for many things, because it helps people. The government taxes cigarettes and alcohol. The sad thing is there are tax subsidies on fossil fuels which has more than 70 billion dollars in subsidies. The U.S also subsidies renewable energey by 12.2 billion, Ethonal and carbon capture. Now tax subsidies for fossil fuels, ethonal and carbon caturew is silly and doesn't even help people. In fact all three of them have been proven to increase CO2 which causes a lot of health problems yet the Goverment subsidises that . And when the IRS dears to subsidies something that help people's health it's a nanny state. It actually helps reducing the deficit

A 2010 cost analysis of low breast-feeding levels published in the American Academy of Pediatrics' medical journal Pediatrics found that if 90% of U.S. families followed medical recommendations to breast-feed for six months, "The United States would save $13 billion per year and prevent an excess (of) 911 deaths, nearly all of which would be in infants."
13 billion dollars the Republicans would like to add to he deficit. Yet again how many Republicans say they want to cut when it comes to helping average families and give money to big oil companies with subsidies that hurt the planet for these average families.

  1. I think what Michelle Obama's critics are trying to say is, "Those sluts have to keep their breasts covered."

  2. Proofing, spell-checking and even getting the names right might strengthen your writing and arguments. Having so many errors in post after post diminishes your argument and distracts your readers. An occasional typo can be forgiven, but error-filled posts cannot.

    I tried my best to make sense of the article. I'm not a mind-reader. Hope I helped it a bit. IN the future, I recommend using a spell-checker, even a US or UK one would help if you can't find a Canadian one.
