HotWingConspiracy: IRQ12: Good on those of you applauding the removal of private/personal choice for increased profits for the insurance companies!Nothing has been removed. You can go work elsewhere or self employ and buy your own insurance if you choose to be a smoker.
Mishno: stonelotus: hiring stupid people still okay.They're actually selecting for a higher proportion of non-stupid people by refusing to hire smokers. This is a true statement, statistically, the lower a person's intelligence is, the more likely it is they are a smoker.
Dafuq: All you people saying that fat people should be discrimitated against aren't looking at the big picture. No one forces you to smoke, but you still have to eat. Healthy eating is way more expensive than eating processed crap that causes obesity. I didn't eat a lot myself, but was 270 on the scale. I changed my diet and have lost 50 pounds so far. My grocery bill is also up about $70 a week. My sister was was very big herself. She didn't eat a lot, as her family was very poor. What they could afford to eat is what caused the weight gain. No amount of exercise will cause you to loose that much weight if you still eat like crap. Their second daughter is very active in sports, but still chunky.Smokers know the risks when they start smoking. They can suck it.
cig-mkr: Perhaps they should review people with children too, kids cost a lot of money to keep healthy.
cman: Wow, subs, its too damn early for this kind of trollin
MikeMc: You know who takes the most sick days? Smokers? Nope. Fat chicksGolfers.
GCD: Here's a question for all of you:Would you WILLINGLY pay to cover someone who deliberately harmed themselves by hacking off a limb?I'm willing to guess the answer there is going to be "No".
Cheron: As a nonsmoker I think this is a bad idea. Can they also not hire some one who eats fast food, rides a bike without a helmet or has multiple sex partners? When we use health cost as a measuring stick we can restrict all sorts of legal behavior because they statistically increase risk.
badhatharry: Egoy3k: So if someone were to irregularly use tobacco then what? I mean what if they give themselves snuff suppositories or something?It will show up on your drug test.
