*** I am no fan of the Affordable Health Care Act but make no mistake, "rationing" already exists in private insurance. There are limits on coverage for just about everybody. The line about rationing is nothing more than fearmongering.

*** Really? Got a link to the part of the bill which states that "some government goon come in and say 'you're spending too much on food'...'or you don't really need that car, take a bus'..."sell that TV, health insurance is more of a priority"?

*** I see an objective person as one who bases her/his claims on evidence and who even then believes that she/he could be incorrect.

If you look at the stats there are no correlations between obesity and infant mortality and lots of "could" and "might" caveats inserted when trying to draw a correlation between obesity and premature death in otherwise healthy adults.

*** A dead baby is a dead baby how ever you see it, how can that be different from country to country?

You used the word "rationing".

At first I could not understand why you would try to discriminate between "restrict" and "ration".

No, there is no correlation between infant mortality and obesity, I was talking about 2 separate stats that were provided. Infant mortality and life expectancy. Obesity rates do have an influence on life expectancy, and obesity is more often than not due to choices made, not health care received.
I hope that clears my point.
