Health Train Blogging

Only I can change my life. No one can do it for me.
Carol Burnett
US actress & comedienne (1936 - )

What blog subjects are the most popular? My recent review of the Blog Catalog, in order are:

1. Blogging

2. Arts & Entertainment

3. Technology

4. Humor

5. Health

So health is in the top five, but just barely. It is tied with Politics, and ahead of all the rest, law, business,financial,beliefs, social, and believe it or not social media.

At this time Health and Politics go together, entrenched in the economy as top talking points in the presidential campaign for the world's most powerful office.

An interesting observation from the Wall Street Journal by Robert Carroll points out the tax realities of each candidates. It gives a clear endorsement to John McCain's health policy proposals.  Would I put it in the arena of Health Care Reform?

NO.  This is merely a poorly conceived financial manipulation to have more people in the 'insured category'.  Both Obama's and McCain's Health Reform amount to a wallet biopsy.

Other issues, such as propositions in Arizona would ban programs such as universal payor or universal health plans.  Would Federal  law pre-empt  state law??
