Support the Stop Subsidizing Childhood Obesity Act

The federal tax code allows companies to deduct marketing and advertising expenses from their income taxes, including expenses for marketing junk food to children.  The Stop Subsidizing Childhood Obesity Act would eliminate the deduction for junk food marketing to children, which could raise $550 million per year in tax revenue and prevent obesity in one million children. 

Please take a minute to email your members of Congress today to support the bill.
