Should Bigger Waists Pay Bigger Bucks?
Obesity has obviously become something of conversation in recent years…
But have people taken it too far? In recent news, policy makers along with U.S. citizens have been discussing the importance of living a healthier lifestyle, while encouraging the public to make smarter decisions by choosing better foods and working exercise into their weekly schedules.
But that’s not the problem.
Not only do certain government officials, programs and organizations want overweight people to obtain a better lifestyle, but they want them to pay more because of it. Is this logical or ludacris?
Several things come to mind:
- Should the government have that much control over our lives to the point in which they hold weight as a reason to dictate our lifestyle?
- Does the government really care about your well-being and health or are these just image based arguments created by a society obsessed with the idea of being thin?
- Aren’t these videos below secretly various forms of discrimination?
- Should this be a “moment of clarity” for overweight people?

Is it or is it not fair to charge overweight people more money due to their size? Think about it. Let us know.
