I question their figures on the economic cost. Do they take into account the money saved when smokers and the obese die without collecting social security or pensions? How about the cost of taking care of an otherwise healthy 80 year old who is suffering from Alzheimer's?
That said, their argument is that they have a right to regulate your behavior based on economic impact to the state. IMHO, that is the essence of fascism. It should be made clear to these clowns that whipping too many people into fighting condition might well be hazardous to their own health.

But they don't GET to make that argument because the vast majority of Americans didn't want that and they forced ward of the state for medical care status upon us anyway. It was their idea, let them deal with the problems.
