And childhood obesity! Commissar Sebelius:
Violence is also a chronic health issue. It leads to asthma, it leads to obesity or depression among the youth who are involved.Huh?
Bet you can guess what this is really about: flushing more money we don't have down the toilet of failed programs:
“We think that the solutions” to youth violence, said Sebelius, “start with child care and Head Start programs that we fund in cities around the country. And today we’re working with states and communities to make sure our children are getting the high quality early care and education they need, not only to succeed in school but for the first time, in a pretty historic partnership with the Department of Education, we recognize that social and emotional skills are a critical part of that early learning.”I won't hold my breath waiting to hear how this relates to asthma and obesity.
