How can we help our economy and create jobs while improving our health through better nutrition?

1.Let's start by eliminating all taxation on the production and consumption of food. Eating should not be a taxable event, and we should not tax those who work to feed others.
2.We must eliminate our complicated system of agricultural subsidies, which disporoportionately benefit the politically-connected at everyone's expense.
3.Finally, we must permanently eliminate the estate tax, which is one of the biggest barriers to keeping family farms productive between generations.
These three changes will empower our communities to feed ourselves, and remove a massive amount of regulatory overhead that discriminates against local and regional producers.

Very, very interesting theory regarding the taxes. These are the types of tradeoffs I would imagine benefitting the economy long term (exchanging subsidies for tax reductions).
