This makes perfect sense. You pay more in health insurance because you're at a greater health risk.
People with disabilities and diseases have to pay more. My dad has epilepsy and my sister`s autistic, and we have to pay more for our family health insurance in comparison to other families because of it.
So why shouldn`t fat people pay more? Makes perfect sense, especially because they`re bringing it on themselves.
(Oh, and I KNOW there are "exceptions" but, let`s face it, most of the obese out there are obese because they aren`t putting forth the effort to not be obese.)
