Jon Stewart Foretells the Future of Health Care

"If it [health care] is paid for by a surtax on the wealthy -- and I am wealthy -- can I then stop poor people from smoking and eating ice cream. 'Cause I see them on the subway and I want to say 'Hey! Dude. You're costing me money.'"

an impetus to ban things like high fructose corn syrup would be a good thing. a nation wide tax on cigarettes to cover their health problems would also be good (we tax cigarettes for that in Utah don't we?). Their is likely other things we could do to improve the nations overall health as well.
