The question stands, Cletus. Any concerns in your area?

In 2012 obesity was highest in the Midwest, where the regional rate was 29.5 percent. The South was close behind at 29.4 percent. Some 25.3 percent of the Northeast was obese last year, with the West right behind with 25.1 percent obesity.

Why should the employer have to provide coverage for those whose individual choices increase risk?
Gee, you stepped in it again. General's post was in regard to your irrelevant cut and paste about one abortifacient drug. You are the one who then came in with the smoking, etc.

Tell us how a corporation worships, do the Directors express their religious beliefs through the actions of a corporation, if so then we're back at religious beliefs that run contrary to employment law.
Do religious beliefs that discriminate based on gender, religion, race, or national origin trump laws against discrimination.
This is tiresome as you once again choose to deny the reality that the owners, CEO's and members of Boards are first and foremost individuals with their own beliefs and values that they do not want violated. You are the one who keeps trying to make corporations sentient.

Bottom line, I believe it is reprehensible to kill an unborn child for pure convenience. I am very comfortable living with my position. You apparently believe a woman who has acted irresponsibly should have the option of killing that same child for any reason at any time, if you can live with that, that is your problem, not mine. My problem is when you think those who consider abortion morally evil should be required to support it and pay for it. The Left so condescendingly declares that people have the right to believe what they believe and act accordingly, UNTIL it means someone doesn't want to pay for the irresponsible behavior of others. Then you demand lock step conformity.

I'm bored with trying to break through your blinders.

Increased risk equates to increased premiums,

Not under Obamacare, the biggest increases are hitting those with the lowest risk - the young and typically healthy. Obamacare success is dependent upon the young and healthy who statistically will cost the least paying proportionally more in order to pay for those with more health issues.

Why should health insurance be tied to employment at all?
It shouldn't. That is just one more of those unintended consequences that cause harm when the government steps in matters it should stay out of. In WWII, FDR froze wages because of the labor shortage brought on by the able bodied men joining the military. Employers started offering health insurance as a way to make their jobs look more appealing. Then it became the norm and is now expected.
As a result, the individual or self employed cannot get the same favorable rates that a large employer with dozens or even hundreds or thousands of employees can negotiate. Medical costs have gone up commensurately as people expect insurance to cover every little thing, when the logical insurance to have is catastrophic for the big things, while paying out of pocket for normal office visits that are for routine things. But the typical American has no idea what insurance costs because it is just a "perk" of employment.(But now thanks to Obamacare more and more employers will stop offering insurance.- more unintended consequences - OR actually intended in order to pave the way for single payer?)
If NO employer were expected to offer health insurance and insurance companies were competing for the business of every individual/family as opposed to just catering to large businesses we would see health insurance costs tumble.
That would have been true reform in action.

Yes, we seem to forget that the government performed its functions for well over a hundred years without an income tax.

Gotta love this forum. It's a replay of the same thing over and over again, with no points ever made, and no points ever taken.'Tis a mighty sad world when folks have nothing left to do but argue in a repetitive circle of trying to prove points in 476 different ways. over 31 thousand posts, and still no compromise. Only bickering, and trying to "one up" others. And people wonder why our government is so messed up. Just look at ya! Always arguing one side or another. I'd use the term 'morons', but that is just way too light. I prefer insane repetition.

@Same Old,

No one is twisting your arm or holding you hostage forcing you to even glance at this forum. If it bores & bothers you so badly, why even look? Trust me, no one will care or worry one second about what YOU do or don't do with YOUR time. Why would we?...... Does that make you feel better?

Oh no! I need no twisting of appendages! I rather enjoy watching folks twist a point into numerous different formations in order to get a point across. It is rather interesting to see the old school way of thinking at work. Do continue, as I find it most intriguing.

Oh, and @silverfoxx...I could give two squirts what anyone thinks about anything I say. That is where you fail in life. You, among most others, use the forum as a way to vent while sitting in the little comfort of your homes. I don't see anyone voicing their opinions to the root of the problems. I only see feeble minded nitwits going on and on about the same topics every day. Yeah, that's gonna get you somewhere, isn't it? And you are right. What I do with my time is my business, but it's a sure bet you won't catch me rambling moot points all day, and all night, while never making a valid point, other than what I have read on the internet posted by others.

As individuals their beliefs and values are not violated, as an employer, through a corporate entity, employment laws trump religious beliefs. Course you haven't explained why they should expect their religious beliefs to permeate through the corporate entity, does liability permeate through to the individuals.
