"I'm confused, which is worse, being overweight, or smoking?"
Although it is politicaly incorrect to say overweight is worse than smoking from an overall mortality perspective.
I also lost 70 lbs while quiting smoking and doing both has statisticaly increased my life from 2003 to 2015 when I may die at age 68 ( useless social security ).

I think the point is though, that people cannot take care of themselves, and need the government there to guide them (think the communists). Don't smoke, don't eat too much, don't drive fast....blah blah blah. If there weren't "free for me" health care, none of this would really be an issue (I get sick, go on medicaid and then you pay for my hospital bills through taxes).
