President Barack Obama wants to get the fat out of the bureaucracy — literally.
The White House said Obama "will direct the Office of Personnel Management to work with the Office of Health Reform, the National Economic Council, the Department of Labor, and the Office of Management and Budget to examine successful employer wellness and prevention practices that lower health care costs and improve employees’ health and to explore the feasibility of developing such a plan for federal employees and their workplaces.

He should start with Barney Frank. I think he's had his hand in the cookie jar way too often.

I am all for the fitness part. However, I disagree with the Army height weight charts. I am 6'5'' 273 (this am) my waist is 38.25'' and I've had my body fat measured in the last year and it was 13.4%. My VO2Max is 62 ml/kg. But according to military standards I am "fat".
But, cutting out the 'pork' would certainly help. I've been to the SS Admin to help my great aunt. What a bunch of fatties. Hell, the man that helped us was out of breath going from his desk to file cabinet. Sad, really sad.
