    These are a lot of stuff. And to think that i am a regular user of salad dressing considering i just love to make salad. Using this as a pattern, i suppose i should make an alternative for those products that i regularly use. Or perhaps you have any suggestion?

    You’re definitely correct. I just wish more people understood the debth of corruption in our government :(

    Great point: we can subsidize the crap that wrecks our health (such as high fructose corn syrup)but never the preventive care that might prevent health problems, which subtracts from GDP and costs our economy billions in lost potential.

    Great Article and information, Thank You! This is disgusting and we need more educated bloggers like you! I cannot tell you how often I hear that health care is too expensive from voters who do not realize how much money gets misspent by the people wasting money on corporate welfare.

    Kudos for creating such a informative site. Your blog happens to be not only informative but also very inventive too. There are very few experts who are capable of write not so easy stuff that creatively. A lot of people keep looking for content regarding a subject like this. We ourselves have gone through several websites to build up on knowhow with respect to this.Keep posting !!

    You forgot the hugely unfair industry subsidies for conventional energy sources like fossil fuels. This contributes in part to the fact that alternative energy technologies are not competitive by comparison.

    Thanks for your insight and opinion. This is the first time I have heard of list of products to stop using to make a point against subsidized health care. This one I have to ponder.

    Yes, the government shouldn’t be subsidizing any of these things. And it shouldn’t be subsidizing health care either!

  14. Tom March 26, 2011 @ 3:50 am

    It is a rule that you tend to get more of anything which is subsidized, with the caveat that you get less of what isn’t subsidized. If corn wasn’t subsidized, you wouldn’t cease having nice things, you would just have nice things made of other things besides corn. E.g. maybe people would use sugar, honey, etc., as sweeteners again!

    Similarly, if you subsidize healthcare, you won’t necessarily get more healthcare, you’ll get more healthcare paid for by government and less healthcare paid out of pocket or via private insurance. This will merely make people more dependent, tend to demand more healthcare (since they’re not paying for it), and result in shortages and rationing. It has happened this way everywhere it’s been tried.

If you are honestly against subsidized health care

If you are honestly against subsidized health care, I want to ask you that starting tomorrow, and for consistency sake, you stop using the list of products listed below. You see, this is not an all encompassing list, it’s just the beginning of the list of products that you should be worried about.
What’s the list? Why should you stop using them, you ask?
This list is a general list of Products that use Corn. Corn is one more of the evils of big government. Corn Subsidies in United States totaled $56.2 billion from 1995-2006.
Much as you malign subsidized health care, you should be against government intervention in our food supply trough corn subsides!

Do it for our children! Do it for our grand-children. Stop now the out of control spending of the government.
