USDA Needs an Extra $25 Billion to Cover 2016 Spending

  • “Infrastructure and agricultural research” leads to $25 billion in discretionary funds.
  • Nate Rifkin shares his plan for the USDA budget… definitely not for the squeamish
  • The latest news on our Surviving the Supermarket guide…it’s right around the corner!

Dear Reader,

Last week, Living Well Daily featured an article about the USDA’s new guidelines and MyPlate infographic.

I requested feedback from you, the reader.

A few folks wrote in to say how impressed they were with Brazil’s approach or how they didn’t care for the USDA’s new guidelines, but what I wasn’t expecting was a response from our very own Underground Health Researcher, Nate Rifkin.

He shared his suggestions for the USDA’s 2016 budget. As he points out, the USDA says it needs an additional $25 billion in discretionary funds.

According to their budget document, “The discretionary funding request for 2016 reflects investments in infrastructure and agricultural research.”

While I have no doubt we won’t see much groundbreaking research coming out of this extra $25 billion, I hope the USDA will spend a little of it on a camera. That way, they can take pictures of actual food for their next confusing infographic.

Anyways, Nate touches on what he thinks is a fair USDA budget and more in his response. Check it out…

Take it away, Nate…

Nate Rifkin’s 2016 Budget Guidelines for the USDA

In the spirit of the USDA releasing their 2015–2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, I’d like to release my Nate Rifkin 2016 Budget Guidelines for the USDA.

First, let’s go over what they’re asking for this coming year:

According to the USDA’s document (which probably cost several million dollars to produce), they’re asking for another $25 billion to cover their 2016 splurging. This is on top of the mandatory $131 billion.

Lacking their budget, I don’t have the staff to produce infographics like they do, but I’ve come up with an alternative solution to demonstrate what their 2016 budget should be.

Here it is:

Notice how there is nothing in between this sentence and the one above? That’s because the USDA’s budget should be… wait for it… absolutely nothing.

That’s because this cancer on our nutritional culture is worse than useless. They’re nothing more than an arm of the propaganda front harnessed by the largest food manufacturers in order to sell their product. What’s worse is the USDA goes deeper than mere say-nothing, boring mumbling about what Americans should be eating. They exert immense control over the food served in public schools and hospitals.

Here’s a novel idea: If a company is going to churn out sugar-laden snacks with the primary purpose of igniting the pleasure centers in our brain, with the side effect of causing the worst chronic diseases known to mankind… let them try to sell the product on its own merits. If someone wants to gorge on sugar… take a bath in it… or maybe dance around their house tossing fistfuls around like confetti… let them. Because as soon as you introduce government regulation into the mix, you’re prying open the doorway to backroom bribery, special deals, exceptions, smooching, snuggling, speech writing… and a nation of millions trained to think everything will be OK because the government said the food’s good for you!

Of course, this point of view always dredges up the ol’ “think of the children!” response. After all, without these bumbling nitwits spending billions to dictate school lunches, won’t children resort to eating dirt or perhaps even rusting playground equipment?

I doubt it.

Keep in mind it’s the government’s meddling that’s led to children being denied healthy saturated fats and has conditioned them to gorge on carb-heavy concoctions, resulting in the epidemic of Type 2 diabetes today. This wave is just getting started, too. In a few decades, we’re going to see an aging generation plagued with horrific health problems because of the guidelines the USDA helped put in place.

“But we can just keep improving government regulation!”

If you believe that, I’ve got a state-funded, federally designed, public-sector-endorsed bridge to sell you…

… Oh, wait, it just collapsed. But don’t worry. It’s a government project. So you have to pay for it anyway.

To your health,

Nate Rifkin
