Teaching someone about a healthier lifestyle may not be as effective as taking steps to affect them where they are likely to be most concerned. For most people, this is likely to be their money, which will be hit by a tax aimed at their weight. If they had to pay an additional tax based on their weight many obese people would be motivated to lose weight. Either the weight related taxes could be deducted in a similar manner to income tax or an additional fee can be levied each time they visit a health care centre. This way all of their self inflicted problems are made their responsibility instead of the problem of the rest of us. Obese people are a drain on other people’s earnings through their selfish lifestyle which causes higher taxes to pay for health care for obese people.
This selfishness is shown in the fact that they make no attempt to alter their lifestyle and become healthy, instead they are happy to have other people pay their medical costs. The fact that they have an extremely unhealthy lifestyle should be their own problem rather than a problem for their fellow taxpayers. The results of their unhealthy lifestyle, which will show up at some point in their lives should not impact other people.
