    Who do you blame? Who should pay for the healthcare bills based on lifestyle? Personal responsibility anyone?

    You should pay higher insurance rates.

    I am a fat old man too. I ran and lifted weights daily until I was 55. I had to stop because all the running destroyed my knees and left foot. My left foot is now a fused mass of bones and both knees are now aftermarket. I’m just north of being mobile now. So then what is the happy medium mister insurance czar? I never met a vegetarian that wasn’t pale and anemic. Is that the new standard we are all to ascribe to? Are we to cast aside our pursuit of personal happiness now to meet your standards?.... and besides, I have to keep my strength up. I am usually called to be a pall bearer at my healthy friends funerals.

    Whaaat? The words "personal responsibility" coming from someone who espouses the government taking care of everyone instead of everyone taking care of themselves? How about a little consistency here . . . ?
