Posted on 09/16/2011 9:35:39 AM PDT by Nachum
Mayor Rahm Emanuel is giving city workers an important health choice: enroll in a new wellness plan, expected to be unveiled Friday, or pay a higher premium.
The price if they don't enroll: $50 a month.
The program includes an initial screening that focuses on preventative care for asthma, heart disease and diabetes. City employees would then receive wellness training to achieve long-term health goals, including weight loss.
Smokers wouldn't be penalized, but they would be encouraged to quit. Advisers overseeing the program will monitor progress on a bimonthly basis, and those who reach their goals could see their health care premiums reduced.

This will be one of the results of national socialized healthcare -
there will be selective enforcement of “lifestyle choices” in order to reward and punish friends and enemies.
Funny how leftist in the 60-70’s opposed gym class in school as it was creating healthy military ranks for the war machine.
THE PEOPLE have got to resist this crap.
I’m going to go on record right now and say that I flat out will NOT participate in any type of unconstitutional healthcare plan.
Who’s with me?
...please show me your internal passport....
when do they roll out the “emotional fitness” component?
they can just figure out your Body Mass Index as they are patting you down to get into a Bears game and kill two birds with one stone
It can be run by “Quitters Anonymous”.

It proves that the leftists are still as loony and stupid as they were 50 years ago. I can’t believe people can be that stupid for that long.
Pretty soon we’ll see that all the obozo hangers on will have their own little territory to control. They’re such a lovely and deserving bunch. Can we get Al Capone back to Chicago to clean up THAT mob?
Doesn’t pretty much everybody have this deal by now? I’ve been doing this for about five years now. At first it gave me agita, but now I figure big whoop, the insurance companies are trying to manage their risk.
They always recommend that I cut back on calories and protein, but at 6’1”, 180#, I think I have a handle on it. Maybe if I become a couch potato who smokes, drinks to excess and gorges on Twinkies, I have to reconsider my attitude.

They bred and taught all that garbage to their kids and THEN sent them to college for the finishing touches. THEN the really brilliant kids went to work for government agencies or ran for political office. Guess which party??
“I Hate Illinois Nazis”
Ladies and gentlemen.....we have a decision......the lawyers win by a knockout!

Disgusting little lock step communists!!!
They did this with PA state workers years ago. My then spouse worked for the commonwealth so I was automatically enrolled. Don’t remember a whole lot about it but this Chicago plan sounds similar.
Can't wait for some enterprising paparazzi to publish a pic of him entering said establishment.
