    Right. They can't afford adequate nutrition because they *can* afford it.

    They just don't know it! m

    Tax money is generated when money changes hands, regardless of it's source.

    If you increase your value in the employment marketplace, your wealth grows. It doesn't grow by taking it from one person and giving it to another.

    No, it won't. Just the opposite. Look at any country that has tried this. Their people are MORE dependent upon government.

    Sure it does

    When I sell something, I give something away and I take money in exchange for it. Provided the cost of making that good was lower then the sale price I generated wealth for myself

    It was give and take

    Were you not stating earlier in this thread that healthy foods were more expensive then junk food?

    And are you now stating it is because people do not know what healthy food is?

    You still don't understand the difference between spending a dollar on chips and a dollar on an apple, do you?
