As I agreed with Run Silent the only way to fix the health care mess is a very large culture change in the US in a lot of ways. A big part of that is on the front end with dietary habits and exercise. There are numerous other things that would need to change as well, but being proactive about ones health instead of reactive would be a huge start.
You would hate the "sugar" tax that they have on soft drinks and other things here in San Francisco. If I want a coke, I don't want to pay an extra tax on that because it's unhealthy. I'd think the majority of people know that it's not good for you - that's not why I drink it. It's a stupid tax and I don't know why people would vote such a dumb thing in. Educate people on making healthy food decisions, don't tax them for it.
