Here’s an article from CBS News that purports to have found a way to combat childhood obesity. Don’t be drinking anything when reading this:

Presidential candidate Andrew Yang, who has a universal basic income plan that he calls a “freedom dividend” (no, seriously), might love that angle from CBS News. So would Bernie Sanders and probably AOC.
Weird how the “solutions” to every problem are all socialist. https://t.co/laeKP9s4mB

Is there anything socialism can’t do? Well, besides deliver the utopia its proponents promise, that is.
Pushing a socialist policy via "solving" childhood obesity……….
How on earth does one think like this? https://t.co/OyvLumwweY

Well under socialism food is rationed so guess that's a good way to lose weight.https://t.co/jRy3hhLLyK

That's not it, chief. This is not a problem government can solve. It takes individuals making better choices.

Oh, one more detail:
Look how cleverly the bottom line was buried…
"Households with lower incomes, however, did not appear to invest the money in a way that helped their kids' health." https://t.co/S2akCxuIyQ

Also: “More income could also lead to children consuming more calories and also gaining weight by leading more sedentary lives, an earlier study on the economic causes of obesity shows.”
Otherwise, foolproof plan!
