To what extent do you believe that the public should be held accountable for an individual's unhealthy choices? Do you think that unhealthy items like cigarettes, alcohol, and soda should be taxed at a higher rate? Do you believe that society has influenced unhealthy behavior in people (through things like advertisements) and therefore the government should assist when it comes to health related expenditures?

I don't thin the government should have a right to tell us what we can eat or drink or make us pay more for it. I think the government has more important things to worry about and they should really get out of our back yards. Smoking is the only thing that people do that can harm others around them. Of course driving drunk is bad too, but if they do that and get caught they are going to pay out the rear ends for that anyways.
