Republican Governor Passes a State Obesity Registry for Children

So much for less govt and keeping it off our back by Republicans. Now tracking your child's personal statistics in a government registry is being passed by Republicans. Even Mike Huckabee passed a similar program. Nothing like a former fatty to lecture others, but most doctors are overweight themselves and many don't know much about nutrition or weight management.

Right now it's anonymous, but that will change as these programs usually expand. With more govt involvement in healthcare, expect these type of intrusions to expand too because the govt will want to keep costs down. The left said this sort of thing would never happen. The right said it would, but we see governors, allegedly from the right passing such things.

Republicans taking their lead from Michelle Obama. Not a dimes worth of difference between the two parties.

Quote:
Gov. Rick Snyder plans to direct [force] doctors in Michigan to begin monitoring the body weight of their young patients and provide the data to a state registry in one of the most extensive government efforts to address the growing problem of pediatric obesity, the Associated Press has learned.

Quote:
The American Academy of Pediatrics, which is working with First Lady Michelle Obama's efforts to reduce childhood obesity, is urging physicians to measure children's BMI and to talk to their patients and parents about steps they can do to address weight problems.

Sorry bro, but you can't tag people that are over weight. They aren't cattle. This is what happens when you have government involved in healthcare.

For some strange reason, I just can't really convince myself to believe this.
