At least one health insurer (and probably others) will actually be docking your paycheck if your BMI is over 30, starting in 2009.
The article's headline reads "Being Unhealthy Could Cost You--Money," but of course it should have read "Being Fat Can Cost You--Money." And that's on top of it costing you so many other things--the right to adopt a child, a seat on an airplane, a job. . . .
I wish I were a lawyer so I could start researching all the ways in which this is illegal. A nice big lawsuit--maybe a class action suit--might nip this repulsive idea in the bud.
