Some people might read the title and say wow he thinks that politicians should decide our lifestyle and how much we weigh. NO thats what I am addressing, I have a good feeling that under the Obama presidency a bill will be passed regarding our eating habits. The eating habits and exercise habits have gone out of control, our waist sizes have tripled in the last decade, and our exercise is almost gone out of our normal daily lives! This is a large problem, and when i mean large i mean large!, and most liberals think that the big-ole government should take up the responsibility in fixing it! Well I am here to say other-wise and here are the reasons:
1. It is a fascist move to make the government govern our daily lives, who's to say they wont start governing what kind of soap you can use? Or what religion you will belong to? Where is the end if they can govern that part of your life?
2.Higher taxes one of the easiest ways to accomplish problem is higher taxes, we have already seen in New York where there are taxes on sweets and most items containing sugar, Why would we tax in the middle of a recession? What kind of move would that be, i know a stupid move!
3.More debt more debt on our kids dont need even more debt, with a stimus plan in the chamber the last thing we need is a runner up to finish us off.
4.It will kill jobs in the private sector people will stop buying coke if it cost too much, and we might not be able to get that Hersey bar we wanted. soo people who make these items will be losing jobs because who's going to by a 5 dollar coke?
5.The government fails at everything else they start up soo why would we trust them with another program to screw up?
How to fix it? i think we should have tax breaks for companies who sell healthy snacks, because many healthy snacks cost more than unhealthy ones soo people buy the unhealthy ones, we should give incentives to companies like Little Debbie is they make their snacks a little healthier. We can solve this problem without spending a dime! We can give tax brakes on gyms, we can ask not mandate companies to make their employees drink an adequate amount of water. What i dont understand is why exercise equipment is soo expensive! Ohh yeah because because it cost soo much to make! Soo incentives for all companies supplying products that help weight-loss. This will not only help Americans waist-line but also their wallet, and help create jobs, because we are not killing off coke or Frito-lays what we are doing is giving tax breaks and incentives soo they can also get with it! soo in the end it will help all of America the conservative way!
