US regulation on food doesn't differ that much from the EU

though it's fair to ask how much obesity would burden a universal healthcare system

I would think there'd just be a higher incentive for doctors to address it

You'd have to explain to me what tank you thought the media was in. But this unified "The withdrawral is a disaster!" - pulling in veterans and people from both sides of the aisle - in the face of 70% approval rates is just so obvious its mind blowing.

As for them being Establishment, are you still a shill if you believe it? The problem with being Establishment is that the fringe wings usually can't give you policy answers. And for better or worse the Left-wing journalists are dying to show the right-wing voter how even handed they can be. That's not reporting what corporate America wants, it's asking how M4A is going to work when you've said nothing about regulating any of the U.S. food. And you can't have 39g Coca Colas and universal healthcare.
They're in the tank for PMC culture where capitalism is good with proper regulation, imperialism is a leftist conspiracy, and social progress is when some puff piece about a minority going to Harvard makes you feel good instead of sad. They don't have to be paid off cause imagining that the country that gave them such a nice middle class life is actually doing something bad isn't something they're generally willing to do.

no but seriously I don't support stupid taxes like that

if income tax has to go up so that we can afford Universal Healthcare for fatties so be it

the whole point in my eyes is to give people more freedom

Fatties ain't going away. If anything, there's more of them now.

70% is the stat for whether people think we should pull out, right?

People can think we should pull out while the actual execution is botched and gets negative media coverage. I don't think there's anything corrupt about that lol it's very clearly a juicy headline when people are clinging to the wheels of planes trying to evacuate.

Honestly I think you're just trying to justify your own interest since you haven't really said anything that wasn't a CNN headline and it's kind of embarrassing if your only talking points are just CNN bylines. Almost like your opinion is a mirage given to you by cable news.
