Overweight people like Francois Legault have ignored the science for too long. They are disproportionately represented in hospitals.

Those who choose to be overweight should not be permitted to go to restaurants, and should face significant financial penalties for their decision to continue damaging the healthcare system and putting others at risk.

If you don't agree you're an anti-science tinfoil hat conspiracy theorist.

No factor predicts medical expenditure as closely as age. One third of lifetime medical costs accrue when over 85. The elderly should be taxed more heavily to access medical resources, as they are disproportionately responsible for causing those costs. Plus it's easy to calculate with just Date of Birth, no additional data required.

Also, women consume more than a third more healthcare services over their lifetimes than men do. They should be taxed for being female.
