This past weekend Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee visited our fine state. At the Politics and Eggs breakfast in Bedford he gave a speech on healthcare, specifically on obesity. Among his various quotes on obesity were:
"We spend more on health care than any nation in the world, And we are still the most unhealthy people in the world."
"If we can prevent things through education, it will be less expensive on the back end. If we cut that to 11 percent we will save $700 billion. And we will still be spending more than anybody else."
Gov. Huckabee is an expert in losing weight because he managed to lose 110 pounds!!
Excerpts of speech were in the New Hampshire Union Leader.
