I may be grossly misunderstanding but why are we seeking to roll back the subsidies and not shift them to the producers of healthy produce? We could set up checks and track sales to guarantee its not going to meat or sugar manufacturers. This could potentially lower the prices of fruit and produce to such a degree that healthy eating would become so affordale that junk food would be an obvious waste of money no one could really afford. If we're going to care about what people consume to this degree, why take away cheap sugar without lowering the price
of (through incentivees) nutritious food currently out of budget for those of a lower income?

Is this more concerned about tax payer savings or creating a more sustainable, healthy agriculture industry? I read it as a tax break dressed up as a shallow emotional appeal playing on the uptick of obesity. See more
