S.C. to cover obesity surgery for 100 workers
By Yvonne Wenger - ywenger@postandcourier.com
COLUMBIA -- 
South Carolina lawmakers chose paying for weight-loss surgery for obese state workers at $24,000 a pop over putting teachers in the classroom, one state senator said Thursday.
Sen. Greg Ryberg, R-Aiken, said special interest groups won a victory over taxpayers when the Legislature decided to put $2.4 million toward gastric bypass and Lap-Band surgery for 100 of the state's heaviest employees, under a state health plan pilot program that begins Jan. 1.
"I think that with folks being furloughed or losing their jobs that it's the wrong message to send," said state Rep. Mike Sottile, R-Isle of Palms.
But Senate President Pro Tem Glenn McConnell, R-Charleston, said obese state workers are destined for massive health problems, and finding ways cut health costs is a good idea.
"If it will save us money and save their lives," he said, "then together, it's a good investment."
Meanwhile, T. Karl Byrne, a surgeon at the Medical University of South Carolina, said gastric bypass and adjustable gastric band surgery, among other stomach-shrinking procedures, already are proved to be cost-effective investments. North Carolina, Georgia and Virginia are among the majority of Southeastern states that cover the procedure for state workers, he said.

I think it's all the many forms of fat they eat. Pork rinds, umm, take a piece of fat and deep fry it, then eat it for a snack - deep fried fat...

One time I was at a friends house and she was makin green beans, she took a huge old, stinky piece of fatback and put it in the pot - I was like why did you do that, she said to make em salty, I asked so you don't have table salt here, you have to make them greasy too?

In all fairness, she did show me how to make the best mac and cheese EVER, and yes, she was a tiny little thing :) But at Walmart I was a Bunny, haha.

Oh btw, they don't have pop, they have soda or coke, and coke can also mean any brand of other soda. I asked for pop and the clerk wanted to know why I wanted her daddy - true story.

I knew a co-worker at a place where I worked who had weight-loss surgery. She was near 400 pounds and every single meal she had either came from McDonald's or Taco Bell. Sometimes she would eat dry cake mix straight out of the box, and she drank like 12 Pepsis a day. I can't understand why she had a weight problem? Must have been her thyroid, yeah, that's it.

After the surgery she lost about 100-150 pounds in about 18 months. It was kind of funny, she started acting and dressing like she was "hot and sexy", but believe me, she wasn't. I haven't seen her in over 6 years, I wouldn't be surprised if she's back up over 350 again by now. These fatties are fat because they are all fucking pigs. Just let them die and quit wasting money on bariatric surgery for these losers. Spend that time and money on people with real medical conditions.

I say pig fat with haricovert or greens beans aint fattening.
Pork has less fat than beef.

No one requires fat surgery. They should caged and starved properly since that's the most humane method of dealing with others who cannot stop eating. Then give them juice to run their brain glucose. Then use flashcards for retraining.

This doesn't make sense. Most states provide health insurance and most health insurance companies do pay for the surgery IF it is demonstrated the individual has tried dieting and excercise to loose weight. But in the end the good ol tax payer gets to step up to the plate. sheeplebah

A better idea would be to educate workers, offer them alternate ways to drop the pounds. I've known a couple of people that had weight lose surgery. Yes, they lost a lot of weight but it came right back.

The surgery is not a miracle cure, one still has to maintain a sensible diet, it's possible to gain weight and be just as fat, if not fatter, then you were before.
