The parents need to be responsible for the child's health. This will get to a point where there really is no need for parents. The government will just TAKE the child after birth since parents are obviously unable to care for their children...
About obesity, it really doesn't matter to me. It's not my problem if someone else is fat, just as long as that person isn't on Medicaid and is using my money due to the poor choices that he or she has made in the way of food.
This sounds great to most of us but the reality is that it just ain't workin'.

As loathsome as it is to have govt. interfere with our daily lives, the impending problems are going to bite ALL OF US in the butt.
