Food Stamps Should Be for Food; Not Sodas and Chips. Your Government Is Supporting Unhealthful Policies.

  • Cheetos and Pepsi, perhaps have a strong lobby in Congress.
  • Do any of these food stamp users know how to cook from scratch?
  • Microwave is as common as the TV remote.
  • Efficiency is great, if it gets you to work on time.
 An excerpt from the excellent article,
The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, a D.C.-based nonprofit, has proposed limiting SNAP purchases to whole grains; fresh, frozen or low-sodium canned vegetables; beans; and fruits. This meal plan would supply 65 percent less fat than the average American diet and twice the fiber, according to the committee.
  • Democrat voters and food stamp lobbyists are in control, and it will be hard to change their unhealthful ways.
