Measure BMI Of All Children Ages 2-8, Next Proposal

Rhino Mary Bono Mack (R-Calif.), is a co-sponsor of fat legislation

Obama’s task force from 12 different agencies has now come up with another intrusive measure they say needs action.  The “Solving the Problem of Childhood Obesity Within a Generation,” report  has 70 recommendations.  One of them is, all children should have their BMI tested, even though the validity of  BMI’s is under question.  Obama wants 10 billion for the program.

Lo and behold one of Obama’s underlings heard Obama’s call and obliged.  Rep. Ron Kind (D-Wis.) and Co-sponsors , Reps. Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.), Mary Bono Mack (R-Calif.), Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio) and Gregorio Sablan (D-Mich.), has introduced the ,”The Healthy Choices Act”. States would  mandate all health care providers to test BMI measurements and provide them to the federal govt.

This would probably be just the beginning.  I’m betting, it would soon extend to all adults too.
