With the explosion of obesity in America , I want to applaud Michelle Obama for her inititive to combat childhood obesity. Obesity seems to be at epidemic proportions here in America. One out of every three children in America is obese. America spends billions in additional medical cost to treat obease Americans for their related health problems linked to being obese. The federal government needs to pass laws banning obesity, to finally gain some kind of control with regards to this national problem.We must enact severe penalties for people who are obease, up to imprisonment, and major fines for being obese. We also need a tax on Obease people, to help pay for the extra billions of dollars that they have spent on them during their hospitalization for obesity related problems.
