Fat Tax

Alabama is going to require government employees to get fit or pay more: http://www.theroot.com/id/48533?GT1=38002

I’m all for people living a healthly lifestyle. I wish I did more to take better care of my body, but forcing people to live a better lifestyle infringes on our freedom. How far are we going to take this? Some people just can’t stand vegetables, but eating veggies is great for your health; so, we should force all to eat veggies. Sugar can lead to diabetes, while artificial sweeteners can lead to cancer and other health problems… better get rid of these things. 

How about this? Instead of punishing those who don’t quite treat their bodies the greatest award those who do live healthy lifestyles. Be sort of like some of these car insurance companies where you get awarded the longer you go without a speeding ticket or an accident.

OR how about this? Government stay out of my life!
