Cant  WAIT to see the reaction to this from the Small government/ corporate sycophantic suckups. Quite a situation eh?

Next thing you know your boss will be telling you how big of a soda you can have on your weekend off!! Somebody call Glenn Beck! 

The funniest and saddest part of this whole story is that they actually have the balls to use Obamacare as a justification which Im sure will be all it takes to pull you in.

I'm a non-smoker who is typically votes pro-business. but this would set a very dangerous precedent. if the only folks who can be employed are the ones with no health issues or risk factors, there's going to be a lot higher unemployment. What's next - screening for hereditary factors? If your mom had breast cancer you're unemployable?

Culver said he does not believe employers should be able to screen for body mass index because there is evidence that genetics can factor into obesity.



So that's where the party of the white corporate fat cat draws the line? WHODATHUNKIT!

conservative 'thinking' at it's finest.  Anything for the 'job creator'.  Can't believe they BLAME IT ON OBAMA.  When will this Tea Drunk senselessness end?  Must be TRUE - Fox 'News' says so !

I wonder whether the gentleman would consider introducing a bill mandating random drug tests for legislators?  Don't we have the right to know what our lawmakers are using?

I didn't think so.

“My coming at this is more about freedom of choice,” Culver said. “Someone who owns a business has the right to choose whether they want to hire someone who is going to raise their health care costs.”

Going the wrong way with this Mr. Culver. Taking this approach will not stop with tobacco and it will not be used just for hiring purposes. Do the right thing and throw this bill out. We need to put people back to work, not add to unemployment. Tony Flora tagged this one correctly.

What legal acts consenting adults do in the privacy of their own homes is no one else's business.
