Universal Healthcare: World's fattest woman wannabe doesn't deserve same level

First of all, everyone should get the most basic healthcare services for free for society to function normally. I have no problem with that. I am still not sure if our current healthcare bill addresses that issue. But other than that safety net, I am against a person like this idiot, Donna Simpson, in getting the same kind of healthcare coverage at the same affordable rate as everyone else. She is eating her way intentionally to become the world's fattest woman.
Donna Simpson currently weighs 600 pounds, so she's going on a diet in hopes of reaching what she considers her ideal weight: 1,000 pounds. The 42-year-old mother, a resident of Old Bridge, NJ, consumes a whopping 12,000 calories a day in an effort to reach her goal.
Simpson already holds the Guinness World Record for world's fattest mother. She insists she's healthy despite the fact that she cannot walk more than 20 feet independently.
The grocery bills frequently reach $750 a week and Simpson supports her diet with money earned from a website where people pay to watch her eat. Her husband, Phillipe, who weighs a 150 pounds, fully supports her plans
There has to be an incentive in the healthcare system to make people get regular checkups and follow recommendations. I will say this. I wouldn't blame an insurance company for not covering someone like this lady.
