"What would China do?"

For decades, insurance companies have tried to get their customers to quit drinking and smoking and to slim down and exercise. But imagine what they could have done if they had the power to simply outlaw behavior that drove up costs.

Taking away your bacon will be deemed a small price for helping cover the Obamacare deficit.

Is this to reduce weight and lower BP or to follow the dietary rules of Islam-no pork.
What about all those hog farmers, what are they supposed to do. Packing plants, truckers. How much will this increase the unemployment rate in the USA.
Is Sharia law far behind.

try thinking about the principle here... the government regulating healthy eating?

you go down this slope... pork, salt... pistols... ask yourself what's next... mandatory ass-wiping inspection?
