How about that? More misplaced assumptions. You guys just hate it when you can't pigeonhole somebody, don't you?

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

Why don't you use the same argument for tobacco as you do for sugar?

if we have Obama care to drive down costs, isn't this a zero net gain in the long term?

If New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg gets his way, stores won't be able to publicly display tobacco products and will have to keep cigarettes under the counter or behind curtains.

The legislation announced Monday is the latest public-health crackdown by the mayor, whose ban on super-sized sugary soft drinks was shot down by a judge last week.
