Energy costs have recently surpassed healthcare costs

General Mills CEO Kendall Powell gives that nugget as an aside to another discussion thread. That’s news for his business.

What if energy becomes the number one focus again instead of healthcare?

Petasnik says he fears government controlled healthcare. He says it creates healthcare rationing, not wellness.

Bucyrus’ Sullivan says healthcare costs have gone flat. He considers it a big accomplishment. The system needs to be tweaked, not scrapped.

McCain says health and wellness must be a part of the American’s thinking. If the school lunch program contributes to the problem, then fix the program. Send the most popular athletes into the schools to talk up nutrition.

McCain invokes the kind memory of Brett Favre. (What will they do no that Favre is retired? Wisconsin needs a new athletic legend Pronto!)
