Michelle Obama right to fight obesity
When will the president and his administration realize that the American taxpayer does not want anything to do with Obamacare? I am sick and tired of the health care reform rhetoric being shoved down our throats.
We cannot allow the best health care system in the world to be destroyed by politicians who wouldn’t want to use it themselves. Since this administration came to power over a year ago, it has accomplished zero, nada, nil, nothing.
I can’t wait to vote some of these guys out of office in November.

Let’s start with the children. Let’s educate them. We can afford the $2 billion if it dramatically reduces the staggering number of obese children.
Kansas City from the health care reform, which is now being considered in all of its forms. Somehow, that doesn’t seem logical. We should not have an elite class that is above the law.
I truly don’t care if they are Democrat, Republican, independent or whatever. The self-serving must stop. The time has come for a 28th amendment to the U.S. Constitution: “Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the senators and/or representatives; and Congress shall make no law that applies to the senators and/or representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States.”
Overland Park shoulders”)? Those shoulders were constructed for a purpose.
Prudent and law abiding citizens go there to text or use Twitter. The occasional hapless motorist turns to the shoulders to change a flat tire or do other emergency repair work.
If the Legislature is serious about reliable and on-time bus service, let them reserve the left lane for buses.
