    Yesterday they announced that the new Obama food pyramid will cost people more for food due to the foods required to eat healthy. The concern was that poor people might not be able to follow the governments recommendations.

    Next step was announced this evening on the news. Due to the fact poor people might not be able to afford to eat according to the government recommendations the government may have to offer more help to the poor so that they can eat healthy.

    The first speech Obama gave after the economic crisis was solved he blasted Congress, then what did he do? He started talking about the government needing to spend more to get the economy going. He may mouth a need to cut spending but he does not live it.

    Lets cut spending, not to be thrifty, but so that we can spend more on what we want!!!!!!:thumbsup:

    Since when does it cost more to cook food from scratch than to buy frozen and canned garbage?

    The types of food is the point, veggies and fruits are high priority. Not method of prep. This was the reason Mrs. Obama talked (supposedly) Wal mart and others into smaller neighborhood stores in the "food deserts."

    Those companies may find out they have no business cuz Billwald may be right :) they might not be interested in good stuff and cooking it.
