    Since the political left thinks that fat people are a 'burden' and must pay more, surely they must advocate that the poor be excluded as they would be an even bigger drain on it.

    Discuss.

    There you go, so why not just scrap the entire thing.

    That claim turned out to be untrue. I guess you didn't read the entire thread.

    first, the presumption that people who eat fatty foods or sugary drinks are ALL FAT...

    and this is simply not the case.

    i know people that are very heavy, and they had never been to a mcdonalds or had a soda with sugar...

    so, to begin, i am uncertain this is nothing but just an added tax to help pay for things, but not to truly make bad habits go away or to punish fat people, per say.

    Of course it's true.

    BTW, isn't a big selling point of Obamacare that people are refused insurance because of 'pre existing conditions' and this has to change?

    Well does it or doesn't, get your stories striaght.

    If it's true then prove it. MM failed to do so.

    Nice that you seem to be admitting all fat people are cons though.:lol:
