Americans Spend $151 a Week on Food; the High-Income, $180

Americans Spend $151 a Week on Food; the High-Income, $180

August 2, 2012

Americans report spending an average of $151 per week on food. Higher-income adults and those aged 18 to 29 spend more on food and are slightly more likely to say they ate out at a restaurant "last night" than are other groups.

Now … $151 a week for food and food stamps are $200 a month … so Food Stamps cover nine days plus one meal on tenth day.

Reality … something is wrong – either with GAKKUP or Food Stamps.

Put it another way: Are the poor being forced to eat cheap and unhealthy foods … is it the government intent to kill the poor, or raise the cost of medical care when their diets prevent their body from fighting disease? 

Is the government willfully causing a health crisis of obesity related diseases – buy forcing consumption of low cost, high fat, high sugar diets?
