Look I'm not American but from the second most obese nation (we follow the USA into every battle ) and I guess we're confronting something similar. I don't see why we should take people's money away from them, then use it to tell them they're spending their money the wrong way. Some people just don't want to be skinny. Either way I don't think it's the government's business.
