vacations continuing through our lack of a national health plan and ending l inev1tably with our polluting SUVsquot It39s notjust that Americans are fat I apparently It s that Americans are the kind of people who would be fat in I the kind of country that would encourage their piggishness i What is to be done The letters pages of magazines are often good 1 places to preview the great bad ideas of tomorrow and recently three let I ters in The New Republic offered a peek The first coesigned by the execue tive director of the Center for Science in the Public Interest and an academic nutritionist said that the government should quotslap small taxes on junk foods like soft drinksquot to generate money for publicehealth cam paigns The next letter from someone with the Center for the Advance ment of Public Health in Washington DC said No one is suggesting the creation of a refrigerator police but so long as the government is spend at E fgdera lave rm health through Medicare yew ui u ing 360 billion per quotaquot Medicaid and the Children39s Health Insurance Program the govarnment s interest in trying to prevent needless illness and death from obesity is i kind of simplequot The third letter came from a professor of publicvinterest law who wrote that he had helped to sue McDonald s for failing to dis close the fat content of its French fries He warned that more such suits 3 could be on the way As with smoking he wrote quothealth advocates may increasingly be forcedquot forcedr to turn to the courts if legislatures continue to do little or nothing about the problemquot If obesity really is such a big crisis I want to suggest a different approach because the ones above seem deficient For one thing snack taxes that pay for publichealth campaigns and lawsuits against food companies seem pretty likely to fatten the wallets of the people advocat l ing themipublichealth activists and lawyers without necessarily I making anyone any thinner Besides most people snack sensibly so why i should they pay to harangue lazy gluttons And I know of no conclusive evidence that people are fat because food companies fail to disclose that fries and bacon cheeseburgers are fattening It seems to me that the only honest and effective way to confront this issue is to tax not fattening foods or fattening companies but fat people It is they after all who drive up the government s healthcare costs so it is they who should pay What I propose then is to tax people by the pound This needn39t be very complicated Fattax rates would be set by a National Avoirdupois Governing System NAGS To hit the worst offend ers the hardest the tax could be graduated People would pay one per CHAPTER i2 PROPOSALS 261 pound quotrate above the overweight threshold and a stiffer rate above the obese threshold Fat people might not like this tax but of course they could avoid it by becoming thinner In fact I might go further Carrots often work even better than sticks so I propose a skinny subsidy to complement the fat tax People who maintaintrim firm physiques should be rewarded for their public spiritedness with large tax creditsifunded of course by the fat tax I My plan would address the nation s fat epidemic equitably and effi c1ently It would make Americans put their money where their mouths are And did I mention that I weigh 135 pounds
