A New Big Deal

Obamacare has been a huge success, but it doesn't go far enough. Food is more important than healthcare and contraceptives put together. It's time that employers be made to provide food insurance for their employees. There is no debate here, food is so medically necessary that 9 out of 10 doctors recommend it. And I'm still waiting to hear back from that 10th doctor because come on. Maybe I'll need chemotherapy or surgery in the distant future or maybe I won't, but I can say with 100 certainty that I'll need food around noon and again in the evening.

While some might argue that a single payer food plan is needed, that won't happen until we are as progressive as North Korea. The for-profit agricultural industry still has a strangle hold in this country, so we'll have to broker some sort of plan that will make them wealthier before it collapses entirely. And it has to collapse entirely. If a plan actually solves a problem by 2016, how can we campaign on that issue in 2020?

Regardless of the fact that this was posted on April 1, it is still dangerous because some jerks in the government may think that your suggestion is a good idea and run with it.
