The Denver Post thinks so, and I agree. What does anyone else think?
It's not fair for people who take their health seriously and cost the system relatively little to bear the growing financial burden of caring for the severely overweight.
From this editorial last year I learned Arizona was looking at adding a $50 fee for obese and/or smoking Medicaid patients.
I think both of these absolutely should be done. I have no idea why I have to pay extra in health insurance or taxes for people who do this to themselves.
