Gigi - when Boom Boom replied this:
Oh, don't get him wrong, Croggy - McGuinty isn't backing away from funding health care, I think he's just completely intimidated (and scared) by how big a responsibility health care is today, and how much more so it is going to be in the future when boomers retire.
That is just what went through the foggy croggy Saturday monring mind.
If they actually gave a flying F about HEALTH they would fund preventive measures and ensure that people of all income levels could afford things like, oh, fresh vegetables and decent food.
But with more of a Boom Boom spin
As in encouraging: Wouldn't that require not only a government response, but also more citizens actually taking some responsibility for themselves? Like exercise some self-discipline when it comes to pigging out on junk food, fast food, alcohol, and smoking, and getting some daily exercise?
The idea of having 'health laws' gives me cold shivers
, but promting 'healthy'
comsumption and and behaviour activities gives me that warm fuzzies.
Many companies give their employees rebates for or even supply exercize facilities
- could not something be included in the tax regime.
How many ka-zillions have been laid upon the failing automotive industry lately? Could not fresh and healthy food stuffs be promoted
in the same way? or perhaps a tax credit for places like the YMCA or similar establishments?
When reading Boom Boom's initial and somewhat depressing entry, it occured to me that this could be turned about and made into a positive and happy-happy :D initiative.
Fuzzy thinking on a fuzzy Saturday morning
after an unhealthy Friday night. :wink:
