Stossel On The Food Police

February 10, 2010 at 10:15 (Health, Society, Video)

I’m all for educating people, but when you start forcing people to do things, you cross the line. If you want to combat obesity, then make premiums higher (or out of pocket for those on government health care). If people have to pay for obesity that is due to their own negligence (and not due to medical issues) then their behavior will change, or they will be the way they are because they don’t mind paying for it. Everybody wins, and no need to force people legally to comply with what you think is right.
