    We need to control what kids eat because it will save money.

    So ... you want Government out of Health Care so that the Government can control what kids eat?

    Your logic is astounding.

    Normal, for QW.

    Yes, by all means, we should continue to pay twice as much for inferior results. It's the American Way.

    A huge rash of kids getting a condition that will haunt them with health problems and an early death is a serious problem. If it was an infectious disease there would be a huge outcry to do something about it but because it is a steady diet of mountain dew, corndogs, mac-n-cheese and pizza we just shoulldn't get involved. The garbage comfort food diet people feed their kids will kill them but we should just stay out of it, it's not like a life of bad health will cost us anything.

    True, it is one the countries biggest health problems. Unless we get it under control, it will cost hundreds billions of dollar and reduce the life span of our kids.

    We should at least be promoting better eating. There's nothing coercive about that...unless, of course, you're a raving wingnut like certain people on here.

    Your lack of understanding is unsurprising. If the government is not in health care it won't be worried about spending money on fat kids who turn into fat adults.

    That is not what they are advocating though, is it?
