“Now that we have planted a White House garden, we want to pay all American’s to do the same,” announced President Obama in one of the boldest policy shifts of his administration so far.
“This is not strictly a food issue,” he continued, “but it is a security issue and an energy issue that affects American’s from all backgrounds and races, in all fifty states. Access to clean, healthy, sustainable food has to be one of our top priorities going forward.”

  • Obama continued by outlining the new Food Security and Sustainability Stimulus (FSASS) with the revolutionary goal of paying the population to get involved with their food. A variety of specific initiatives include an increase in funding for urban farming initiatives, a joint USDA – Homeland Security program on “farm-worker health, safety, and well being,” and progressive tax credits for turning your backyard lawn (or apartment rooftop) into a source of food for your family.

    Obama said he expected the FSASS to pass through both the House and Senate with little opposition.
