think about this

40% of the average family budget for food is spent on fast food (source)
the average child in america eats fast food 3-6 times A WEEK! (source)
the average american eats out almost 4 times a week (source)

setting aside the obvious health issues, if the average family of 4 eats fast food twice a week (conservative) at a cost of say $15 / meal (probably also conservative), that means that out of the family budget about $1500 a year goes to happy meals. the reality is, it is probably a lot more than that.

we don't need a tax credit for kids in this country, we need to shut down mcd's.

i have no idea how my mind got onto this train of thought.
