Do you think Fast food is killing the taxpayer?

Reading the opposing opinions on this article makes for a heated debate. What do you think?

I can see both sides, but I don't eat much food out of the home. More people that are further from the farm may have a completely different perspective also than us farm folks.

How does that figure, ?   If they were not working at fast food outlets where would they be working,   figure that.

That is a good question, where would they work? They do provide jobs for the food producers and the suppliers. McDonalds has replaced almost all of their stores in our areas and now are talking about adding more lanes so there is no waiting.I do know that one employee in our area won a trip that McDonalds provided for good employees. The man was in his late 30s and said he had worked there for many years and had never had a real vacation. If the mimium wage goes up it will bring some changes.

I do think fast food is killing those who eat there regularly.
