We talk about the costs of health care and the reform of health care provision. This is just treating a symptom. The problem, as many Americans percieve it, is that we live unhealthy lives and we therefore incure great health care costs.
I advocate a tax on unhealthy consumables like sugars and fats. We would aim to diminish demand for the very elements in our diet that makes us less healthy and more costly as well as provided the government sorely needed revenue to cover health care expenditures.
