Meddling for Our Good

Take a look at this report regarding Medicare covering certain obesity treatments. I will allow that obesity does cause a great deal of health problems,  however the real issue for me is that this is going to give the Nanny State an excuse to regulate the diet of average Americans. Much like the cost of treating brain injuries lead to the call for mandatory helmet laws, we can expect to see legislation fairly soon.

I'd give it two months after the next Democratic administration takes office.
