IMHO hear me out wrote:
IN my opinion, this is also why elitist people on letsrun.com hate the changes coming to healthcare in 2014. The idea I see people post here is "why should I have to pay for people who are obese and have health problems just because they're obese?" They say this until one of them gets cancer in their late 20s while training 100mpw....and wishes they had coverage.... (God forbid i dont wish it upon anyone here) We owe it to society to insure everyone...prevention is key when it comes to health...it's not only the right thing to do, but it will save money in the long-run.
if you have private insurance now, you're allowed to keep it (no mandate). but it's pathetic that 28% of people in the 26-35 yr old age group don't have health insurance. WHat do you think that means for the future of the United States of America?
Obesity isn't necessarily due to laziness, sometimes it is, but sometimes it can be due to a disease
You don't look at a person injured in a car accident and paralyzed from the neck down and say "that persons lazy, it's his own damn fault"...yet when we see the morbidly obese, we assume it's due to their own damn fault.
That last paragraph is unbelievably dumb.
