Back in May I mentioned American Airline’s new charge for checked luggage and asked if people would mind paying for their flight based on their weight. In the comments many people thought this was discrimination against people with a “disability”. Well Alabama is now going to charge fat people $25 per month for insurance unless they are working at shedding the extra pounds. They have a pretty generous definition of who is fat enough to pay the fee–your BMI has to be over 35 (30 is usually considered obese). If you are 5’6″ that means you are probably over 220 pounds. They already charge $24 per month to smokers. What would you think if your insurance gave you $25 for being at a healthy weight and charged you $25 for being extremely overweight?
