Whats the opposite of Healthcare.gov?
Romneycare, a Repooflican program, is used by Repooflicans as evidence that government can't do anything right. Aside from the wild tangled garble of cross-party rebranding and contradictions, the basic point is unfortunately correct. Every aspect of Romneycare is utterly wrong and utterly incompetent and totally destructive, and it will never go away. It will grow multi-layered convoluted exceptions and exemptions and epicycles until it brings the whole country to a grinding halt.
Though it's probably too late, I like to remember that the government can
do some things well. It does an excellent job on hydropower despite an increasing pile of genocidal Gaian limitations imposed by evil parts of the same gov't. Most of the govt's efforts in agriculture are competent and useful.
is a website that communicates its main point perfectly and helpfully. It's a vast improvement over previous attempts at nutrition advice, such as the idiotic Bush-admin recommendation of "5 to 9 portions of vegetables and fruits". What's a portion? What's a vegetable? Raw or cooked? Does that mean you should eat 9 meals per day? Or just 9 blueberries? How in the fuck are you going to acquire "5 to 9" whatevers without spending all your time cooking? Result: Let's just go to McDonalds and have a Happy Meal.
In stark contrast, MyPlate shows you visually
what a balanced meal should look like, and shows you how to get there. It's a perfect use of graphics and a well-built lively website with lots of resources for different types of people.
However..... a short article
reports on a survey of households. Only 10% of "trendsetting moms" (huh?) were even aware of MyPlate.
Bring back Home Ec, dammit!
