    This guy needs a good spanking for trying to tell people what they can do. He's like an out of control bossy child left in charge of his siblings, not like a parent at all.

    Bloomberg has completely lost his fk***Ing mind and needs to be impeached along with Diane Feinstein for mental incompetency. They will both be responsible for the downfall of the Democrats next election.

    this gov has all things backwards,they are not to dictate to us we are to dictate to them. they are not kings and queens as they think,we are not their peasant subjects. they were elected to "serve" the citizens of the USA.

    To anyone who actually votes for these Government control freaks, I say you are totally out of your minds and as pathetically naive as it comes. It is you who vote these idiots into office.

    Bloomberg is turning into the poster boy for liberal excess.

    The govt should present people with information, but only in very limited circumstances should govt try to compel behavior.

    Remember how Prohibition worked out?

    Yea, we can take away their Big Gulp, pay them to exercise, but it's just a tad bit much to force people to exercise. How about we leave people alone and let them make their own decisions?

    How about the FACT that he NEVER said that he would force people to excercise in the first place....?----Any room for just a tad of fact in any of this at all?

    @Sonny - Here's some facts, it's too much for the government to take away someone's Big Gulp and it is too much for the government to pay people to be healthy. We shouldn't even be discussing whether the government should force people to exercise.

    @Neo_NtheMatrix First, the concept of "paying people to lose weight"----was a Mayo Clinic study---and NOT some government program.(So YOUR "fact" here is not correct!...Second...I don't live in New York---I don't even buy "Big Gulps" ----And I have no problem consuming any particular beverage I like...I suspect that you don't either...If those in New York city have a problem---then they should elect a new mayor next time around. Third, Once again...the man never said that he would "force people to excercise"...That is a FACT...

    HAHAHAHAHAH! Imagine that, LOL!

    The only reason Bloomberg isn't making you do EVERYTHING he wants is the Constitution of the United States, lol. Left to him alone? He would mandate exercise and at certain times during the day also, lol, or face domestic embrago, lol.

    We laugh at it now. But it's coming... and not long off neither.

    Definitely not the Constitution stopping him, only thing stopping him is exactly how much the people will put up with. These politicians thumb their noses at the Constitution.

    This is why we have the deficit we have. People saying "it's none of your business" I consider 190 billion dollars directly related to obesity to be everyone's business.

    @jessejaymes my statement relies on the study that obese and smokers kill themselves off more quickly so they cost less in the long run also if you chose self destructive habits I think you should have to pay your own way

    @Robbo03712 I don't mind at all if they want to kill themselves off. It's a free country. I just don't want to pay for them while they do.

    @jessejaymes then take it up with those who are trying to make you pay for it. Fat people aren't trying to make you pay for anything. An overreaching government is. Fat people don't stand to line their pockets with your extra cash..corporations do and then politicians do after they get lobbied. Follow the money. Who's got a motive?

    @Slowmo They don't have to stand to line their pockets with my money. they just suck it in like they inhale food and I have to pay for it everywhere I turn around.
