Obama’s Initiatives On Food Safety And Long Term Care For Elderly

President Obama’s administration has taken first steps toward promoting food safety by calling for tougher standards for production of poultry, beef, leafy greens, melons and tomatoes, an important move to insure that Americans have confidence in their food supply, which in the recent past has suffered from several health scares due to lack of regulation,  which started to be cut back during the Presidency of Ronald Reagan.

Also, Obama has introduced the idea of providing assistance for the growing number of elderly in this country who are or will be forced to live in nursing homes and assisted living facilities in their twilight years, or be required to have skilled nursing care at home.  With the growing number of baby boomers reaching the elderly stage of life over the next twenty years, this is indeed an important initiative to deal with what is a growing need.

Of course, these proposals will cost the government and the taxpayers over the long haul, but both are essential parts of improving life in America!
