<. If government gets control over healthcare, government will hold that hostage over our heads by making us live a certain way to get the healthcare when we need it, things such as can't eat this, can't do that, etc. etc. if we don't follow the governments "healthy" lifestyle rules they will simply deny you the care or ration it when it comes time for you to need it, is that what we want in America? really? Government to grade us on how we live per their rules in order to get the healthcare? Doesn't anyone see the wrong in government forcing us to live a certain way in order to get healthcare?>

First, there is NO indication that government will deny medical care if people live unhealthy lifestyles. The insurance companies charge more to smokers but not to the obese.

Second, I think that's too bad because I think that people SHOULD be held responsible for their poor lifestyle choices.
