  • There should be a fat tax placed on the obese.

    There should be a fat tax placed on the obese. The stresses that obese people put on our health care system are way too much. These people need to be punished in some way that allows them to fix their problem and no have to be punished anymore, because people can stop being fat.

  • No taxation without representation

    Across the country, activists are battling to put a cap on obesity and how to decrease the rates and one of their biggest lines of attack is taxes. Officials are proposing a tax on unhealthy food, describing it would be a crucial part of a plan to save $500 million a year in medical spending. Though the new tax would punish patients for conditions they can’t always control. Proponents of the tax act asserts that obesity will decrease in size if tax is put on sugary beverages and unhealthy food. Nonetheless the U.S. government should not take responsibility for the way people handle their overweight health problems. By doing the taxation on the food it will result in singling people out, some will not be able to afford the price, and it is their choice to become healthier and to chose what is the best way for them.
    By singling people out will cause some social and embarrassment problems and risks. The singling out will burden on poor families with varying income levels. In the text “The Forum for Health Economics & Policy” states “The report which measures the impact a 10 percent fat tax would have on families of varying income levels, concludes that almost the entire burden of the fat tax falls on poor families.” This means that singling the poor out because they can’t pay so much for available healthy food will put pressure on them. It would be like if you were taxed on getting a sunburn. It will also lead to a decrease in money and they won’t be able to afford the change in tax.
    Some people will not be able to afford the increase in the size because of their income ranges and if they are able to buy the healthier food. One thing to consider is that when the less fortunate have some money to go and get food to stay alive they will grab the junk food and the easier stuff to carry around and not half to throw it away when it got bad. From the text “The Forum for Health Economics & Policy” states “The regulatory burden for the average family declines rapidly with income. … Thus the burden at $20,000 is nearly 10 times larger than that at $100,000.” Which means most families with lower income will not be able to get the food needed and go for the cheaper and easier food. There was more words I couldn't fit in BTW.

  • No, there should not be a fat tax on obese people

    Requiring someone to pay a tax for the simple reason of being fat, would be very discriminating. Most people are not fat by choice, so taxing a fat person is like taxing someone that got a sunburn. It is unethical and also prejudice towards people that are overweight. We should not tax fat people for being fat.

  • No, They Should Be Free to Be Fat

    No, a person should have the liberty to be fat if they want to be. Freedom means allowing people to make their own poor choices. However, as part of that freedom, other people should not be responsible for their medical bills, or for giving up parking space or for any other inconvenience that a person might have because they are obese. A fat person should have the freedom to be fat but should also suffer their own natural consequences.

  • Placing a "fat tax" on the obese would be discrimination.

    No, there should not be a "fat tax" placed on the obese. Doing this would be discrimination and a violation of privacy. Singling out obese people and treating them different is discriminatory. To determine if they are obese, they would have to be weighed, and that is a violation of privacy.
