THIS is "Health Care"?

At 651 pages and counting, the ObamaCare bill is not yet 'complete.'

And some stuff just doesn't seem to be "health care."

The HELP Committee Democrats' bill would:

Establish a "Community Makeover Program" to spend billions to beautify streets, up to $10 per person in selected communities;

Fund a federal government program to build new sidewalks and bike paths, and put up street lights;

Finance new grocery stores and farmers' markets;

Revoke employers rights to provide free wellness benefits to employees;

Mandate that a new Washington health police bureaucracy dictate what local restaurants can offer their customers; and

Subsidize community projects like building jungle gyms in parks.

More and more it appears that there is a Mental Health crisis--in Congress.
