Drink soda? Get health insurance

Courts have now determined that New York City’s ban upon certain sized sugary drinks, particularly soda, shall not stand, thus enabling stores and restaurants to sell such drinks in any size they wish.

Well, OK, apparently feeding the sugar addiction of the American public is a constitutional right. Fine. Drink up.

But do the rest of us a favor: Make sure you have health insurance because when you get diabetes, or heart disease, don’t just go to an emergency room and put the onus upon the rest of us to pick up the bill if you can’t pay. Hospitals, after all, are understandably reluctant to just eat the cost of your care and will surely pass it on to the rest of us.

So, drink up, eat Twinkies, do whatever you wish, even smoke, but take responsibility for your actions.
