END JUNKFOOD SUBSIDIES. Our tax dollars should only go to
things that serve the public good, yet we’re handing out taxpayer
subsidies to profitable corporations including Cargill and Monsanto
that are pocketing tens of billions in taxpayer dollars and turning
subsidized crops like corn into junk food ingredients like high
fructose corn syrup. It’s all the more outrageous at a time when
one in three kids is overweight or obese, and obesity-related
diseases like diabetes are turning into an epidemic.
You can make the difference, because no
one in Congress wants to be seen standing up for taxpayer giveaways
for junk food. Given public concern about obesity and federal
spending, your support can help us finally beat Big Ag and end
subsidies for junk food. Take action today.
