I believe the health care system needs fixing, but what concerns me is establishing a system (ala social security) that taxes all for those who don't take care of themselves. This isn't even easy to write because I'd like to think that *everyone* should have healthcare, but not being an "expert" I have to ask is it realistic, especially in light of all the studies and media coverage around the fact that obesity at an all time high and most significantly contributes to poor health. We need to fix this epidemic in tandem or I'm afraid any system that is put in place will fail and be over-costly, no matter how well architected.
