Smack the Twinkies out of their hands! You can't expect people to have healthy eating habits when school cafeterias offer fast food and candy. It's simple, Jack. Schools educate our children about science and literature; why can't they educate them about healthy eating too? -Kevin, Ontario
All places in this country that serve food need to go back to portion control. We have too many buffets and too many restaurants that offer dishes for one person that can serve three. We live in a culture of over-indulgence and over-eating... We also need to make gym a daily class from preschool to the end of high school. -Noel
Since obese people cost Medicare much more than the trim types, why not charge extra for Medicare and other health insurance for the fatties? Fair is fair and they might knock off the jumbo bacon burgers. -Bob
Congress and the White House have a perfect solution to 75% of Americans overweight by 2015. Just simply change the definition of overweight and get the commanders in the field to insist they need until 2025 to determine if it worked. -JeffShould the federal government have to reimburse Utah millions of dollars for the cost of educating children of illegal immigrants?
Jack, If we start billing the Mexican government for the cost of health care and education for their citizens illegally squatting in the U.S. a solution might be found sooner rather than later.-Richard, Seattle, Washington
Yes. It's a no-brainer. The federal government created this problem so it owns it. -Marlene, West Palm Beach, Florida
Being that the government has given illegal immigrants a pass into the country they need to reimburse all states that are using money to educate the children of illegal immigrants. The states could be using that money to improve education for legal citizens and legal immigrants. I support Utah. -Shehila, Tampa, Florida
Utah! You want to talk about Texas? -Jane, Georgetown, Texas
