My sister just called my daughter and told her that Obama under Obamacare was going to take all overweight children away from their parents. I cannot believe Obama would even consider this. I voted for Obama and didn't see anything about this in the Obamacare plan. Please confirm one way or another if this is true or a myth. I have a grandson slightly overweight, but his parents are working with him. He is very active in sports and they fix healthy meals. We would all go in to hysteria if we thought he could be taken away. I cannot believe this is true and feel my sister was being very very cruel and telling this to my daughter. She is a republican and I believe she is trying to start trouble since the rest of us are democrats and she is mad that Romney didn't get elected. Please reply ASAP.

It's certainly a shame when rumors like this are started. This is 'tall tale' absolutely false (and borders on the bizarre).
This rumor may have been started because of Michelle Obamas plight in helping school children eat healthy.
School lunches (because of budget cuts) have continuously gotten less nutritious over the last few decades. If this does not stop the obesity rate will go through the roof for children.
Please tell your sister that this is just a silly rumor. You may also tell her if she cared so much about her children that she would embrace that when she isn't around to help them eat right that they can start (hopefully) get a decent lunch at school; which of course good nutrition helps you learn!
We're so sorry that she is mad because Romney did not win. Just give her some time and I think that she will be very thankful when all of the elements of the Affordable Health Care act are implemented
