    ... With extra taxation, because they are a burden on the medical system and they should PAY for their excesses and risky behavior.

    Well....

    What about other high-risk activities, such as intravenous drug use, unprotected anal sex --unprotected sex of any kind -- and any other activity that is known to spread AIDS? Shouldn't these folks share the responsibility of the burden their behavior is placing on the system?

    Wonder why none of this is addressed in the health care reform proposals?

    Discuss.

    Why just talk about AIDS? How about Hepatitis? Other STDs?

    But, that being pointed out, are you denying that smokers and obese people don't put a large burden on the tax care system?

    Why just talk about fat people, smokers and drinkers? If you're really going to do prevention by social engineering thru punitive taxation, why limit yourself to those?

    Don't we need every dime we can get to pay for this?

    Why do you want any of them punished? Everyone engages in risky behavior, it's unavoidable.
