Yes, because if you're poor you certainly don't deserve what the rest of the country does.

Well me and my family certainly dont eat that shit. We dont need to. We'd rather be healthy.



And yes... if you cant afford luxury items on your own, then work towards bettering your life so that you can. The government doesn't owe you potato chips and cookies. It doesn't owe you anything. I'm not saying NO FOOD, you sound ridiculous.

Those who are poor deserve to have enough to get buy, but seriously.... what did I mention that wasn't great nutritional food for families? Go ahead.....

You do realize that you can get a bag of chips for like a dollar, while buying something like fresh vegetables would be 3-5 bucks, right?



My family and I eat healthy, we manage our budget and make it work. But not many people are as educated as my DH and I about food and nutrition.



I don't really think potato chips are a "luxury" item. IMO things like fresh strawberries and blueberries are a luxury item, they sure as hell cost a lot more.

I dont know about "better"..... but they certainly get more than most struggling families do.

Well I stated that earlier. I'm sick of looking at poor overweight children who will have health problems down the line due to all the frozen pizzas, top ramen, and soda

I dont agree with fruit being a luxury item. However I agree that the price of junk food being much less than healthy food, is a HUGE problem in society.
