A simpler and probably legal solution - modifying food stamps to limit food purchases like WIC. You only get fresh fruit, vegetables, low fat milk, low fat cheese and healthy items. No more junk food or pre-prepared food. Given that 20% of households receive food stamps, and poverty correlates to obesity, this type of change could be made in the name of both health and cost savings.

You obviously don't understand that the purpose of SNAP is to hand out as many taxpayer dollars as possible to anybody who is not actually eligible for them.

Fine and smart idea. I can hear the complaining already.
