Regardless of a supposed obesity epidemic, this is still ridiculous. I don't see how they are even allowed to do something like this legally. The government needs to back the hell off. If we want to get fat, let us. It's not their right to control how much food we eat, nor how much we drink.
Actually it is, because the government has been responsible for picking up the tab with healthcare costs. This is exactly why I don't think government should be given authority over the things people can manage on their own. We wouldn't be dealing with the current deficit crisis (at least not to the current magnitude) if it stayed the hell out of people's business. If people want to die prematurely due to an intemperate and unhealthy lifestyle, then let them. Let the people reap what they sow so and stop trying to play mother to the people.
