If they don't have to pay for the healthcare of their poor choices?
Researchers say obesity costs in the U.S. totaled up to $92.6 billion last year, and government- funded public insurers Medicare and Medicaid financed about half of those expenses.

And its incredible to think it all the way thru, like the same folks don't have money to buy food, but they have money to buy smokes. They don't have money to buy their children good food, but they have money to buy alcohol. Poor choices in diet, and poor lifestyle choices cause diabetes, liver disease, kidney disease, std's, chest infections, sinus problems, vitamin deficiency, colon problems, heart attacks, and I'm talking about people that are my age!! Then b/c of the poor health, they cannot work. They cannot work, so they must continue as government dependent, food stamp dependent, etc.
Its a vicious cycle that perpetuates itself. Kinda like a hamster on a wheel.

Eating healthy isn't expensive, it's time consuming and people are lazy.
Amen to this.
