Michelle Obama has made the fight against obesity her main focus as First Lady. In typical leftist fashion, she has proposed a number of government regulations that would force Americans to make healthier choices regarding nutrition and exercise. “Let’s Move,” her program aimed at children, has attracted criticism for its embrace of big government answers in response to the issue of obesity. According to a recent Pew Research Poll, a clear majority of respondents feel it is not the government’s job to dictate what citizens can eat. By a 54-42 margin, those polled said that bureaucrats should not have a major influence in the fight against obesity.
