the government should have stayed out of health care. now that they are in it you can expect more and more BS. i look at it this way. smokers dies early and save billions in social security costs. the increased cost for medical care is offset by the decreased cost of the pensions. so smoking does not upset the feds nearly as much as riding without a helmet. that tends to kill young people before they have had a chance to pay 40% of their income into that sucking hole called the federal budget.bodypainter said:Well, that opens a can of worms. Can I decline to subsidize anyone's ass because they smoked and got lung cancer or because they were speeding and got in an accident or because they ate too much crap and got fat or drank until they got liver disease or masturbated until they went blind?
