Michelle Obama and WH Encouraging Pediatricians to Prescribe Drugs for Overweight Children

Michelle Obama has made dealing with the problem of childhood obesity the main theme of her term as First Lady.

Michelle Obama reveals some requirement of the new Health Care law that seemed to have been hidden in its 2,000+ pages. Nancy Pelosi famously said "We have to pass the bill to see what is in the bill." Well, now we are finding out little gems like this.

Wild Thing's comment.......

Wow. This sounds like the type of thing that would happen in 3rd world country.

All they have to do is put gym class back in schools. I was so surprised when I found out they had stopped having a gym class and put the left's agenda in place of it.

I bet their plan is to get kids addicted to drugs now and they can be guaranteed demoRats when the get older.

I say why not prescribe jail for the Obamas and throw away the keys.

Well since it is Labor Day, eat drink and be merry for the future is socialized medicine and it looks like it just gets worse the more we find out about this monster obamacare. They threw everything in it, omg what a nightmare.

Cradle to grave. That is how the Progressives(socialists/communists) want to control us. This obamacare does just that. Michelle just loves being a m ember of the elite ruling class.

First Ladies Laura Bush and Barbara Bush are well remembered for their many initiatives on literacy, particularly with children.

Nancy Reagan for her campaign against adolescent drug abuse and her message "Just Say No" to our kids;

Rosalyn Carter for her work with mental illness; Pat Nixon for her initiatives for volunteerism and handicapped children.

The most enduring and effective initiative by an American First Lady in my lifetime was Texas native Ladybird Johnson.

Ladybird's lifelong love of the land expressed through her wild flower institute and foundation in Austin is still at work today and seen across our country throughout our interstate highway system and in our National Parks.

So what about now in 2010 ?

Shamelessly prescribing drugs to our children and legitimizing their use !!!

Where is the outrage ?

This is yet another example in what I like to call a long slew of slights against our American way of life, and of just how unfit for office this huge lamentable mistake, these God forsaken creatures now in the White House are, and which we have to tolerate for yet another two years.

Well the left has about half the kids on Rittilin now the other half will be on some bogus fat pil. What the hell is wrong with her. Put them on durgs, how 'bout exercise, wouildn't it be more prudent to try a non drug remedy first. Like maybe put Gym back in school.

She and the jerk should get together and compare notes. She is out there trying to treat overeating with drugs, and he is out there on TV promoting feeding the hungry. They could combine forces and help the overeaters feed the hungry. Be a part of the solution, not part of the problem. We do not need more drug dependency.

"Cradle-to-grave" ? This gang wants to see fewer babies make it to the cradle and more of the "unfit" see an early grave. These people want to know my BMI so when I get old they can deprive me of medical care as a "poor investment" even if my sickness has nothing to do with my BMI. You can have a higher BMI and not be fat-it ignores build type. And what an invasion of privacy! "Aunt Esther" Obama-"lose the weight you old (fat) weasel-eyed heathens".....

It sickens me to think they would make it where childen or anyone had to take stupid drugs especially for something like this.
