    Of course not.  They shouldn't die, there should be some aid in place, but something that's not self-reciprocating.  Like, something that pays the bureaucracy 20% and the needy 80%, without printing more money that decreases the value of currency.  

    Like, I don't know, discounts for healthier foods when used with the food stamps; and advertised as such by the production company.  

    Keep your laws off my body. I don't care what you do to my neighbor.

      Forced advertising, the same way we force tobacco companies to tell the truth about their bad news, we should force healthy food companies to print the good news, and offer discounts, at the cost of tax incentives.  

      Companies aren't people, they make more than people, they can afford it.
