Mitt Romney was recently in Israel, praising its socialized health care system. So it's interesting that Israel is joining governments like Finland, Denmark, France and Austria in trying to reduce obesity and encourage healthy eating. Israel is planning a special tax on unhealthy foods and special labeling of healthy foods.
Romney likes Israel's healthy and cost-efficient results but he doesn't support its government regulatory methods of insurance mandates, aggressively regulated nonprofit providers, and now, a fat tax and food warning labels.
Ironically, for being a businessman focused on results, Romney the politician now isn't willing to do what's necessary to get results in health and its costs (he was when he was Massachusetts' governor).
