That's a strawman argument. That's not what I was talking about. I was talking about mandating that someone eat food or buy food. I don't know of program forcing people to eat or buy food.
But I am opposed to food entitlement programs as well. Nothing in the Constitution for special interest group legislation. I am for temporary aid at the state level—just not national. And only if a person applies for it on their own will.
