Not that Liberals believe in God or anything, but certain things are sins…against humanity.
Like being fat!
The bourgeois Leftists won’t say it out loud, but they hate whatever they deem “out of style.” And let’s face: thin is in.
So when ObamaCare was crafted, the cocktail-sippers in very Hitlerian fashion decided what look was good. And though they no longer cater to the “blonde-haired, blue-eyed” racism, they sure know how to cleverly disguise their “ism” against fatties.
Enter stage Left, the infamous and previously vanished, Jonathan Gruber.
In a 2010 report on “Taxing Sin”, he advocates for a fat tax, called a “body weight tax.” And in typical Gruber style, he doesn’t let the tax look like a tax:
“Ultimately, what may be needed to address the obesity problem are direct taxes on body weight. While it is hard to conceive of this approach being a common public policy tool in the near term, such taxation may be happening indirectly through health insurance surcharges.”
