Look, I mean this makes sense theoretically, but its not going to happen. If we dont do something to encourage healthier eating behaviors, our healthcare costs will continue to rise.

Ban tobacco, ban alcohol, ban automobiles ... let's see ... what else causes death and/or injury that causes health care costs to continue to rise.

Oh, wait ... let's just let those people who get cancer (for example) die ... problem solved.

While we are brainstorming things that wont happen, what if we just had no government?

That would completely eliminate the deficit, and we would have no taxes either- problem solved

It's not a difficult question.

Did I use a different argument for tobacco? I dont think I even mentioned it
