I don't need to listen to Rush Limbaugh to know exactly what is wrong with Obamacare and why YOU do not want this . . . S.L.

CVS Ordering Workers To Reveal Weight, Health Info

SAN FRANCISCO (KPIX 5) — Pharmacy giant CVS has told workers in the Bay Area and around the nation to reveal their weight and other health information, or pay extra for health coverage.

The company announced Wednesday what it called “A Plan for Health,” that features a mix of rewards and penalties for employees.

Among the measures, employees must report their weight, body fat, cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar levels. Workers must also be tobacco free or enroll in an addiction program by next year.

One of the first things you learn in the Army is "You take the King's schilling . . . " meaning they pay so you do what they say. That's OK in a volunteer outfit, but in the old days "The King's schilling" had a more sinister connotation.

So it is with ObamaCare - the American people have lost a significant amount of freedom of choice. CVS is not driving these requirements; there will be more and more businesses demanding private health information from employees. What follows is they start telling you what you can and cannot eat - Mayor Big Gulb Bloomburg is already there - and then a keytag with a barcode that you better swipe at the gym, and log into the treadmill. Can't own a gun because that's a health risk, too.

Mark my words.

Wait and see, people.
