    Re: Obamacare Will Force One Florida County to Make Nicotine Use Illegal

    The best way for this government to dictate everything and anything in this country is through health care by citing "health care costs" as a reason for banning and regulating everything and anything...

    They'll tax junk food like cigarettes, hell they will require you to buy a license to buy junk food, they'll attack and regulate entire industries..... And the progressive tyrant big government commies will say "it's for your own good" and that alone will be enough to soothe any progressives nerve..

    This is exactly what the real progressive commies want....

    Of course every progressive will tell me to put my tinfoil hat on, however, in 10-years they will defending the enforcement of this "tinfoil hat stuff" without question.

    They'll be like "well you should have to pay 10 bucks for a cheeseburger - I'm not paying for you to get fat." That's how they will defend this Orwellian bull**** in 10-years.

    Is that what you're saying?

    Oh, only a loon buys what they're spoonfed...
    Just because something deals with healthcare doesn't mean it's ObamaCare related. There was a huge correlation between increased healthcare cost and nicotine use way before ObamaCare. And ObamaCare isn't the reason that these people are trying to cut costs or putting these measures into place.

    Just another attempt by the GOP to control the citizens of Fl.

    Except that it won't force them to do anything of the sort. A slightly critical read of the article should lead a reasonable person to believe that the headline is misleading.

    You missed the point. Another poster wanted to make the debate about George Bush rather than the bolded topic.

    If the bolded topic is wrong, why not divert to something else that is also wrong?

    Of course it does considering Obamacare will be the staple insurance of the public sector........

    Not to mention IMO there is no real evidence to support smoking causes cancer. I can show you a healthy 90-year-old smoker and I can show you a 35-year-old non-smoker (who never smoked ever) with lung cancer...... It all really comes down to genetics.. Some people are predisposed to cancer and others aren't...

    Obviously smoking isn't good for you however no one can prove it "causes" cancer - not to mention use of anything in excess is bad for you.

    There's not enough time in the day to adequately respond to all of the utter nonsense in your post.

    I sincerely hope you have a great day.

    Good...

    Just like progressives in government don't want to outright ban guns, free speech and state rights...

    Yeah it's "tinfoil hat **** day" I suppose.

    I bet the Jews thought registering as "Jews" and Germany as a whole giving up their guns was "for all good."

    I forgot history will never be repeated...

    No need to make it illegal. Just don't hire smokers. It's not like that would be a new trend. Lots of companies won't hire known/admitted smokers.
