The government's war on obesity
Part of the problem with government health care is the emphasis it places on “prevention.” And while prevention might be fine in theory, in reality is just becomes money spent of PSA ads lecturing us about our diet. I think most people would rather to forego the lectures and have the money be spent of real research to finding cures.
No doubt that Americans are obese. But most people are smart enough to know why they are obese – they eat too much food. There is no need to waste taxpayer dollars to preach to these people.
