So, am I in favor of these measures to curb unhealthy behavior and reduce obesity? No way. Both of these measures fail to address the root of the issue: personal responsibility. If health is important for you, then you probably are reading this blog, educating yourself, and your family. I equate obesity with financial health. What do credit card companies do if you are not responsible with your spending and saving? They penalize you. They charge you fees and higher interest rates. Does this encourage people to have better spending habits? No way. Credit card debt is higher than ever. Spending habits and financial health need to be practiced every day. I know, I am in no way financially extremely fit. I could do a better job myself.
I will let Bill Burr finish this post off because he is funnier than me!
