You don't need to increase spending to reduce obesity. You need to reduce caloric intake. It's called the Law of Thermodynamics. Works every time. Because it's a damn law. Like gravity. More people should try it. But to our government, the SCIENCE!, it seems, is not settled on this one. We need to spend money....lots of it.
How much, you ask? It starts with a paltry sum of $25 million, chump change for Democrats, but in the next year, it becomes...."such sums as may be necessary". Which translates into sky's the limit, kittens!
What? You don't want to help people? You don't think the Federal Government has any right to spend one single dollar on why fat people are fat or to convince them to be otherwise? What kind of person are you? Hater. Bigot. Racist. Fat-person hater.

Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-D.C.) has put forward legislation creating a federal program aimed at reducing the number of overweight Americans
The Lifelong Improvements in Food and Exercise (LIFE) act, H.R. 4604, proposes spending $25 million on the program in fiscal year 2013, and "such sums as may be necessary" for the next three years after that.My plan is just don't feed them.
