It's pretty simple straight forward math...
Increase the price of junk food and decrease the price of healthy food.
When a box of Kraft Dinner is cheaper than a head of broccoli, what the hell do you think people on a tight budget are going to buy ?
And just what the hell kind of a world are we living in when a friggin tomato costs more than a small pizza ?!
Seriously ? A head of cauliflower should cost a hell of a lot less to get to the supermarkets than a manufactured can of ravioli does.... and yet it costs more ?!
It tells us everything we need to know about just how corrupt the system is when price controlled markets don't even give a flying fiddler's fart about the quality of the foods they're making affordable to the average Joe.
This all boils down to which products corporations can make a better bottom line with.
And instead of going after the fascist pig corporations, what do our governments do ?
Yeah that's right, they go after the consumer who has no control over any of it.
Which tells us everything we need to know about who's truly holding the government purse strings...

We pay for them to destroy their own body
Then we pay doctors to fix them
Then we pay nurses to hold their hand while they slowly die on life support
