Get down and give me 50!

Complaining about a steep rise in his health insurance costs, radio host Ed Schultz made an alarming suggestion Wednesday after citing government laws on speed limits, vehicle emissions and smoking in public places --
In fact, you don't have to look very far to find mandates in your own back yard, from your own local folks. Yet when it comes to health care, all of us are allowed to just take a free ride. And you know what? You look at the financial situation, the crisis that we are in globally, you look at the financial crisis that we are in trying to save our financial structure and Wall Street and the trillion dollars that's going to have to be put into infrastructure, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. And you can take apart the budget all you want and say, well, this is pork, that is pork. You know what? You and I are pork. Because we are unwilling to accept a mandate from the government that would order us to exercise! I'm serious about this!
Starting with largely sedentary talk show hosts!
