I’d sooner have the old presidental physical fitness programs of the sixties back, than this food nannydom.
Offer discounts on health insurance to people who walk, say, four miles a week and keep some sort of reasonable documentation of it. That would be more sensible.
Yes, it would be, so it can't possibly be done! ;o)
We already get breaks on homeowner's insurance if we have smoke detectors, and sometimes get breaks on automobile insurance if we drive carefully, and don't get tickets. It would make PERFECT sense to reward, monetarily, those who work to stay healthy. It might even encourage those of us who aren't as healthy as we could be to work at it, if we knew we'd be able to save money.
Why should you have either? Good grief when we are offered a false choice when none is required it looks like we are getting a good deal, which explains Romney.
