I can't pose the question without sounding heartless, but:
Why are we (all Americans) paying for what amounts to long term care to help somebody who cannot/will not follow a diet? Realistically, what he is suffering from could be facetiously labeled as "biscuit poisoning"
I understand that it is hard to control weight, and I do not mean to trivialize the problem. I'm not even opposed to having Medicare pay for medical treatment of obesity. That said, this is not a simply a case of obesity. This patient has serious health problems that appear to be self inflicted. What about a little personal responsibility?
