    Wellness plan for Chicago city workers - The SouthtownStar

    They want to control your lives under the ruse of "cost."

    This is EXACTLY what would happen under Obamacare...

    Not only that but they would attack and tax any product the government defines as "unhealthy" killing the businesses that carry or produce the products, hence killing jobs.

    The employer is the state government...

    This has nothing to do with socialism as an economic theory and everything to do with the social consequences of socialism.

    The government in authoritarian fashion dictates your life and if you don't follow those rules you're going to get fucked one way or another...

    This is just an example of big government dictating peoples lives...

    Who the fuck is the government to tell people what they can and cannot do or eat???

    Then progressives have the fucking audacity to claim they're for individual freedom???

    No, no you're not - you're for a government dictated Orwellian society and this new "wellness plan" proves just that...

    Indeed, the city (this is happening at the municipal level) is acting in its capacity as an employer. It "dictates" the terms of its employees' compensation packages. By which I mean it negotiates them with its public sector unions.

    Are you coming out strong for public sector unions as a counterbalance to defend against the, er, outrageous tyranny the City of Chicago is visiting upon public employees?

    Anyway, the city is hardly the only employer offering wellness incentives in the health benefit it offers employees.

    It's usually not about cost or health or name the issue here _____ , it's typically about greed with "Progressive" types. They lust after power. They thirst for it like an alcoholic thirst for well... alcohol.

    Which reminds me, I need a drink.

    .

    That is the point...

    This is how governments control people..

    "oh well it will cost you too much money" therefore I have the right to tax fast food joints 25% because they're contributing to this massive alleged fat epidemic...

    If I was a socialist that despised capitalism I would use that to destroy the capitalist model..

    "I'll tax you out of business because you're a capitalist business and I will take that money and redistribute it"

    Er " I don't like you, you're my enemy - therefore I'm sicking the dogs on you (progressive socialist brainwashed health nuts) and we're going to shut you down"

    I called this shit the second socialized health care was up for debate....

    I suppose I'm correct yet again......

    They don't have to when your (metaphorical) donut fund is removed automatically from your paycheck.
