Soda companies rake in $4 billion a year of taxpayer money via the government food stamp program

Sugary sodas and aspartame-laced diet sodas can all be purchased with taxpayer money via the federal food stamp program. It’s called the “Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program” (SNAP), and it provides free food credits to 42 million Americans who use the credits to purchase junk food, birthday cakes, sodas and more.

As a result, U.S. taxpayers are subsidizing the soda industry to the tune of $4 billion a year while low-income food stamp recipients drink themselves into chronic diabetes and obesity.

What could possibly be wrong with such a program?

Food stamps routinely used to buy soft drinks, candy, cookies and ice cream

Far from what most people believe, the federal food stamp program (SNAP) isn’t a program to provide nourishment to people of low income. It’s actually a program engineered to keep the masses sick and diseased while pumping tens of billions of dollars each year into the processed food industry run by powerful corporations like Coca-Cola, Pepsi and Kraft.

The USDA SNAP website admits, “Soft drinks, candy, cookies, snack crackers, and ice cream are food items” and are therefore eligible for purchase using food stamps.

(Soft drinks are FOOD? Somebody at the USDA needs to wake up and smell the processed coffee…)

This means the U.S. government is subsidizing the aspartame industry as well. All the poisons that are put into these foods — sodium nitrite, MSG, petrochemical food colorings — are all being subsidized with your tax dollars.
