You are correct - obesity disproportionately effects the disadvantaged. Unfortunately, ignoring the problem will only increase the poverty cycle. One takes grandparents out of communities that need them. Kids learn their eating habits from their parents so by ignoring the problem, we also condemn their children to an early death.
Would you be more comfortable rewarding those who engage in healthy behavior?
Your comment "Why in the world would the same crowd that is worried about overpopulation want to increase the life expectancy of anyone?" paints all those who disagree with you as death mongers. This is not true. Generalizations like that are foolish at best.
