| | This guy was in the ballpark, but still doesn't know what game he's playing. First off, why is this commie whining about the private sector having to spend more money for wider airline seats and for wider doorways???
| Emanuel, a bioethicist at the American National Institutes of Health, explained that it’s not just energy costs, but also infrastructure. |
“People have had to change, ah you know, the size of doorways, the size of chairs on airplanes and at sports stadiums,” Emanuel said. “So there’s a lot of hidden costs as well to the increasing girth of Americans.”
If only he would have said something about the cost of obesity on our health care system or entitlement programs, he may have actually shown that he was thinking. But with this hand wringing about spending more for bigger cars or using more gasoline or this other foolishness, he comes close to making a valid point, but misses it by a mile at the same time.
