Washington DC’s War against Mexico

• Bad Quaker
I was reading a story on a liberal web site about how corn subsidies lower the market prices on a variety of junk foods therefore making them more cost effective for poor people to purchase. The result being that the poorest people in the US eat the most unhealthy foods while the more affluent can afford healthy alternatives. Of course the author, being a liberal statist, was only noticing one tiny suction cup of the massive tentacle of US farm subsidies that distort the market and ruin people’s lives around the world. But sadly, as I read the article, I couldn’t help noticing the implied solution was to simply subsidize “good food” while bringing down the hammer of regulation on the “bad food”.
