Congress: End tax deductions for companies that sell junk food to children.

Did you know that we're actually giving tax deductions out to big companies that go ahead and advertise and market products that contribute to childhood obesity? Congress should support U.S. Rep. Dennis Kucinich's bill to end tax deductions for companies that sell junk food to children as part of negotiations to avoid a fiscal cliff. We can find a way not only to reduce childhood obesity by blocking these deductions for the advertising, but we can also enable our children's health to be put on a better path, and our country's health to be put on a better path.

The practice of giving tax deductions out to big companies that go ahead and advertise and market products that contribute to childhood obesity needs to stop. Congress should support U.S. Rep. Dennis Kucinich's bill to end tax deductions for companies that sell junk food to children as part of negotiations to avoid a fiscal cliff. We can find a way not only to reduce childhood obesity by blocking these deductions for the advertising, but we can also enable our children's health to be put on a better path, and our country's health to be put on a better path.
