Health Care Issues Worldwide: China's New Aged Care Law: And What About the 29 U.S. States That Have Laws that Require Children to Support their Elderly Parents?

The misguided politicians who oppose affordable health care in the form of a federal law such as "Obamacare" should then instead be passing laws in their gerrymandered districts and States to properly take care of people like the elderly. Are they doing that? Of course not.

In a report by the Associated Press at ABC News in 5 Things to Know About China's New Aged Care Law - ABC News, it is written:
"A handful of countries, such as China, India, France and Ukraine, require adult children to financially support their parents. Similar laws are in place in 29 U.S. states, Puerto Rico and most of Canada, but they are rarely enforced because government aid helps support the old. In Singapore, adult children who do not give their parents an allowance can face six months in jail."
We wonder how many of those who oppose Obamacare are THEMSELVES supporting their elderly parents rather than having their own close relatives rely on government handouts or other forms of "socialized" i.e. "socially pooled" assistance or aid, including private health insurance, especially in those U.S. States where they are required by law to do so.

American Wines: 2013 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition Has Picked the Winners: e.g. Chimney Rock Best of Class for Bordeaux Blends

The results are in from the 2013 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition of over 5000 wines, the largest such competition in the world for American wines.

Among the Sweepstakes winners for its Terlato Family Vineyards 2010 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley wine, Terlato Wines International at Chimney Rock: Exciting News also announced that its Chimney Rock Cabernet 2009 Elevage was named Best of Class for Bordeaux Blends over $50 -- that's the top of the line in that category.

Chimney Rock Winery was originally founded by the late Sheldon "Hack" Wilson, who of course would have been proud of this honor.
