Alex Lange is a chubby, dimpled, healthy and happy 4-month-old.
But in the cold, calculating numbered charts of insurance companies, he is fat. That's why he is being turned down for health insurance. And that's why he is a weighty symbol of a problem in the health care reform debate.

That was just completely uncalled for. Especially from someone who is an adult in regards to a 4 month old child. Though I would sometimes expect it from some children who do not know better towards other children.
In regards to this issue, ALL children should have insurance no matter what. No matter if their parents are rich or poor, sick or healthy, all children should have health care.

This is cool. I'm all for discriminating against fat people. Even at a young age.
Work your butt off, fat**!
