Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee says overweight and out of shape Americans are threatening the economic security of the U.S. Huckabee was campaigning this morning at a Cedar Rapids hospital, and says the nation does’t have a healthcare crisis — but rather a health crisis.
Huckabee says if we don’t start changing the way we think about the healthcare situation, it will "literally bankrupt us." Huckabee says the government and private insurance companies must direct more money to wellness programs.
Huckabee is crediting his recent debate performances with helping the health of his fundraising campaign for the GOP’s August Straw Poll event in Ames. Huckabee is claiming his funding disclosures later this week will show improvement
