Fat Taxes

What’s the latest? Well, if the unholy behemoth of ObamaCare or some such other flavor of socialized medicine ends up happening, then we all immediately have a say in the health of others. Yes, folks, think about it, your hard earned taxes are going to pay for your neighbors cancer treatments, should he develop it after years of smoking. So you better go over there and stop them. Or get the government to tax unhealthy habits out of existence. So now, kids parents will be taxed for having fat kids: I mean how is this going to work, do they weigh your kid at school in the cafeteria, then hand them a bill to take home for you to pay? Or does your pediatrician slap you with the fat tax at her office? Why don’t they just weigh us at the DMV and slap us with a tax when we renew our drivers license?
