Stop Subsidizing Junk Food

Stop Subsidizing Obesity 
TAX DOLLARS BECOME TWINKIES—Since 1995, $17 billion in subsidies for big agribusiness have gone to the ingredients in junk food.

OUR TAX DOLLARS SHOULD ONLY GO TO 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. 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.
