    So now you are an expert on what is legal that is harmful? By whose standards? You asked the question, I answered it.

    Obesity is surely harmful (to oneself and society). Should it be made illegal?
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

All I see is another group of arrogant liberals who blamed the previous group of arrogant liberals for not spending enough money in the right areas.
    We weren't talking costs dude. Stay on topic for more than one post, lol. You called it socialized medicine. I showed you it wasn't, and then you start bitching that I have no idea how much it will cost? I'd say I have a better idea than you simply because you have no ****ing clue what it even is. Once you can wrap your head around the fact that Obama didn't socialize the entire medical sector we can start on the rest of your childish arguments.

    You think it is the Government's role to regulate human behavior when it comes to what they can eat or not eat? Did the govt. raise you? As a Libertarian, your leaning, it seems to me that govt. involvement in personal choice issues isn't part of the libertarian platform. Thought Libertarians wanted less govt. not more?

    Incrementalism, rough, incrementalism, you crawl before you walk. No private business can compete with govt. so tell me why do you believe a word this Administration tells you? I have seen no evidence that you have a ******* clue on any issue yet but you do have that liberal arrogance claiming you do.

    That was your statement, not mine. I never stated that anything should be made illegal; only that a proper way to deal with obesity is to increase tax junk food. The only person who brought up illegality was you!

    That's the can of worms. Where's the line.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
