Not that long ago the government subsidized the auto industry to save the American car companies. Now, there is a petition circulating for the government to do the same thing for "Hostess", the company that makes Twinkies. Now, with Hostess Brands closing up shop and heading for liquidation, some folks want President Obama to bail out the junk food industry.
The petition to "Nationalize the Twinkie industry." was started by a gentleman in Kansas City. The petition is posted on an official government website, "We The People". Interested in signing?.
