Yay or Nay? How to fix the obesity problem.

     So I had this idea with a friend while talking about obesity and the problems it is causing on personal and global levels. Why doesn't the Federal OR State government give citizens tax cuts and/or incentives to keep their percentage of body fat under a certain level. Japan does something similar.

   Now some problems this may face are doctors that write off somebody who isn't under the mark, people would somehow argue the freedom of speech against this issue (TRUST ME), and I think it would be unfair for people with true disabilites.

     History has shown under presidents H.W. Bush, Clinton, and W. Bush, that when taxes are decreased...the government has more of a profit. Feedback?

  2. Cuz big business is the primary sponsor of big government. So legislature that would discourage people from using their products won't see the light of day.

  15. how about in the era of high tax regimes when it was considered the golden age. When everyone had a house and ever garage had a car? Taxes ran as high as 90% for the highest tax bracket, yet the complaining about it was actually less than it is now.
