For those of you living in anticipation of the implementation of Obamacare, you may have unexpected surprises in store. Do you want another reason for social workers (i.e. some young college graduate out to change the world before experiencing it) coming to your door? Telling you they are taking your children to a state care facility for their own good. Well, in the UK, the nation famed for its NHS National Healthcare, that is what often happens; and it is soon to come in the USA.
You see, when one National Board rules that there is a problem in protecting the children, the social services are most often tasked with solving it. Since social workers have a wealth of Government school training and usually very little real world experience (and a heavy caseload), their solution is state care.
Just read this excerpt from an article in the UK Daily Telegraph:
Professor Kevin Fenton, Designate Director of Health and Well being at Public Health England, said drastic measures were needed to tackled what he describes as an “obesogenic environment” and help the 1.3 million children who are obese in England to lose weight.
Public Health England is a new body which started work on Monday April 1 “to protect and improve the nation’s health and wellbeing, and to reduce inequalities”.
Now with all the parents afraid to send “little Johnny” out to play, or too busy at work to be home to see to it that “little Johnny” isn’t spending all his time on computer games or television, what do you think will happen? After all, isn’t Obama doing his best to remake the USA into Europe?
Healthcare is important, but name me a government program or institution that has proven efficient or effective in the long term. If we can’t be trusted to solve our own problems, do you want to live in the “Nanny State” that has proven to be a failure in providing “Cradle to Grave” care and is bankrupting Europe?
