If Obamacare passes, should a fat tax be imposed on obese people and a tax credit for people who are not obese?



People who smoke pay more for health insurance, because they have more health problems. Overweight people have all sorts of problems, high blood pressure, diabetes, stroke, heart attacks, knees, feet and joint problems. So, why should those of us who take care of their bodies subsidize those who do not?

  1. How about A tax for big mouths who put out too much co2 like YOU?
    Why should I pay for abortions and those that smoke either?

    What about children that are born out of wedlock..they probably didn’t have prenatal care!

    How about those that are black..they have higher chances of diabetes and heart disease and breast cancer?

    How about YOU when you go to fast food places? YOU are inviting cholesterol!

    Why not make it mandatory that people on welfare have to be sterilized and taken off welfare?

    Don’t be absurd!
    This is exactly why this should not pass..so people have the freedom to buy their OWN insurance and not be offended by ignorant idiots like you!


  2. How about we stop paying for welfare people who have not worked at least 5 years in their life. We should also cut off their food, I am sick of paying for rugrat scum I didn’t get to contribute genes for.


  3. I agree but then the tax should also be imposed on young drivers, ( they have far more accidents than real people) anyone who consumes alcohol, beer, wine, etc., anyone who uses recreational drugs such as marijuana, anyone who has out of marriage sex and risks VD, anyone who gets a girl pregnant, any unmarried girl who gets pregnant, anyone who doesn;t get 8 hours of sleep every night, and so forth.
    I mean, if you are serious, do it right.


  4. No. People who register as Democrats should be taxed for imposing this stupidity on us.

    You’d better pray that the GOP wins in 2010 and 2012 so this garbage idiocy can be eliminated.


  5. And while we’re at it, why not impose rules on the “proper” body type, and hair color, and which foods are legal and which should be taxed higher because YOU don’t like them.

    Let’s add a tax to anyone that drives a car that doesn’t get 40 miles per gallon. How about a tax on your Internet use too, since that is a luxury item. How about a 50% tax on shoes that cost more than $20, or clothes, or vacations? A vacation is not your God given right, so it must be a luxury, so any travel plans should include at least a 40% fee for Obama and his socialist agenda.

    It never ends… what you ask makes sense in your naive mind, but will balloon into the govt taking even more of what I work for, which means MY family gets less. I don’t give a rats ass about you or your family, so YOU pay all the extra fees and taxes this socialist agenda is bringing on, and leave me alone.
