A cartoon of Obama ignoring health care costs...

Oookay....

If only there was some piece of legislation that he had his name, just, right IN, that was addressing health care directly. GOSH.

This is not a joke if you ever sat between or noxt to a over weight person on a long plane ride.

@RichardBolf 

I think it's happened to most of us. The solution is to have a variety of seat widths and some seats that provide extra leg room for the extra tall, not to produce seats that are uncomfortable for most and unable to fit a growing portion (soon a majority?) of the population and then turn around and say, oops, the seats are too small, i wonder how that happened. It happened in the first place to wring as much money as possible out of the hardware. They've pushed that as far as possible and now have hit upon a solution that says, we don't offer transportation to people, we offer transportation to units of weight. Let's not confuse the situation by attaching personalities to those units or affording human dignity. Dignity can't be weighed in pounds like fuel, loads, and English currency; it's not our business.

@RichardBolf Yes, I've paid full price for what essentially boiled down to half a seat, thanks to the gentleman next to me.
